Solar Panels for 2009 Jetta TDI

Thanks very helpful. A few follow up questions:

- What is a reasonable voltage range to inject via the 12V outlet? I realize this will be dependent on the sunlight hitting the panels, and how I wire them (series vs parallel), but what is the high range for safe voltage without damaging anything?

- What is the approximate draw (kW, kWh, amps) of a typical alternator? Clearly this will vary significantly with HVAC and other load.
