.... i know a few people running a GTI  connected to a battery , but not such a big one ...

Axel Joost  http://www.solarelectrix.de/power_2_grid_uk.html   uses a Gti  to feed the house Grid from a battery ...

Just an example !

A kettle used properly is a far better water heater than a microwave. 

I stand corrected, true that.
I was going to measure it except I don't have a lecky kettle.  Turns out google already thought of it first.

By Gum,
          500kgs of plums and 400kgs of sugar is indeed an awful lot of jam,
  It should have been 500gs +400gs, and I could never muster up the jam jars to pot a ton of jam anytime soon.
