Also this is still off topic as it doesn't refer to the comparison of cost of heating a cylinder of water by gas or immersion (with existing equipment only )

Yeah, good point Heinbloed.

Oh, looky here, there are some people on this thread talking about buying old Ford Fiestas, Corollas, etc.:

No one has even suggested investing in a new Prius!! Think you might have to go over there and set them straight.

I totally agree, my posts on this thread are off-topic.

Trav described his observations concerning monetarian profits/expenditures in an existing DHW system, without changes in the technological set-up or consumer behaviour.

And my postings lead to a discussion what's feasible for the future.
