    Can you drive around the M25 (on autopilot) using only energy from the sun? Yes you can! Total energy used 38.2 kWh, total energy supplied to car last week from sun 49.1 kWh. video coming soon.

    That will be nice to see. What speed do we have to drive? 2 miles per hour?

    LOL, maybe best to store the energy in a big car battery (you might have handy) like I did rather than charge and drive on the go ;)

    Ok, until I saw the video where you first said charging all week, I TOTALLY assumed the wrong thing from the "Driving on Sunshine" title. I was thinking you were literally driving in real time on sunshine, not charging then driving. Saturday morning and my brain is not working :rolleyes:
