I've always wondered how effective putting solar panels on an EV would be.  
Just how far can you go on 1.6kwh of juice?

Big article in the local paper about the hottest rip-off item
since CB's of the 1960's is GPS, Satellite Radio and "control
heads" which the theives mistake for either of them.  Just the
mounting bracket or even a trace of the suction cup goop on the
glass will get you a bashed in window...

Shucks, and for the first time in my life this summer I actually
permanently mounted my D700 control head bracket instead of
letting it slide all over the place.  See my control head in my
Solar PHEV car:
