Been busy with wood

Just had a new wood burner installed (after having 400L of kero nicked) and can't say how plaesed I am! It's connected to my hot water system which is also heated from solar and it's just the biz!

Two nine inch logs managed to heat my hot water tank to 72C.

I've seen a few kit cars that look like 4x4s but are based on fwd donors (can't remember the name, maybe Qdos can help). Might be worth a search on ebay for unfinished projects. Should be plenty of battery room on-board.

Never heard of this one before, was it an official release? An EV's third on my list of things to buy and something like this would be ideal.

5/ Don't currently have any renewables but solar hot water is top of my list so that wont help much with the electricity.
