    Electric vans & the future of conversion

    What they dont tell you is that the scrapping of the seabed to get the stuff for the battery is wrecking the environment, and if you ran a petrol/diesel it would take well over 11 years to cause the same damage to the planet, remember that they told us all to buy diesel, yea right big brother.

    Electric heating in the van

    you would require a very large bank of batteries, I have a 400w we plug in fan heater running through a 600w soft start inverter, don't take very long to take 180amps of battery down to a danger level, go diesel night heater.
