    Yuahasa? Never heard of that one, bet it's under size on CCA, can't beat the Hankook MF31-1000.

    I think 2 yrs ago. We get through them due to location and lifestyle. Most journeys are under 20 miles each way. During lambing it's a killer, as farm is on 1.5miles away. So constant short hops.

    I need to drive her more. Would sort the problem. I love her, love driving her, but nowhere to go, and I'm likely to kill a tourist at this time of year, if I go for a jaunt.

    Not true, even on an overcast day, a solar panel produces some power, it's just a matter of choosing the right size. I use 20 watt panels with a charge controller. On a heavily overcast day in winter, the still produce about 30/50ma which is enough to keep the P38's happy.
