You would need a 3000 + pure sine wave inverter or better to start a 240 well pump. Along with the large inverter you would need at least 300 amps at 12v of lead acid or about 150 amps of LiFePO4 and a short run of 2/0 cable, way heavier than what comes with most inverters.
Thanks for chiming in; I think I was directed to the thread where you and I were discussing before, from when I started this thread.

So, to clarify for people on this thread, you're talking about the 3000watt inverter and 12v battery bank, and charging that from a smaller inverter attached to the Leaf (probably by having the 3000watt inverter actually be an inverter/charger).
