I also had a great day using an E-20 and tiller for garden work/fun. 
However, I am also very fortunate to have an EV and that was fun to
drive for an errand.  Power to charge the EV comes from solar.  Most of
the power to charge the E-20 comes from wind and the rest from solar.

I bet if your wife drove an EV, she would be sold on it as well.  Good
