Car economy questions

Cycling, trains, walking. This is the place to talk about how good or bad cycle routes are, mention great train journeys, talk about car sharing schemes or husky travel. Anything in fact that is about transport that is a little alternative.

They do use more - I saw a wind-up DAB one once, and I think you had to wind for one minute for each 5 minutes play! Mine goes for about an hour per minute winding. And the solar panel is very useful in summer.

I was only expecting the panel to work in the summer but it is holding it's own now...admittedly much further south thank you Ina!

Had a bit of a problem with the pictures but I have some more in the pipeline....
