Well, at least one guy on here took off his alternator and replaced it with a bank of batts to avoid parasitic drag - solar film could help keep those topped up.

If I could, I'd add a couple of flexible panels to the roof of the subie and take its alternator off. Anything that might drag its miserable mileage into the thirties would be welcome.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
