    What he said was the team coming after him a little while later actually took 110 days. They weren't right behind but seperated by at least hours.

    Actually...

    TAYLOR: Most people know I was the first man through the portal, What people don't know is that the men who came through behind me, well they didn't show up on this end right away; for them it was just the blink of an eye, for me 118 days.

    Even so, you'd think that there would be some more space between the people going through if 10 hours translates to 110 days.

    He didn't state this happened all the time, It could just be a malfunction or something that may happen due to some gravitational flux or something? May be solar flare disrupted it? who knows

    It's definitely something that can be explained away, I think the problem is they didn't. They could be setting it up as a future plot device I suppose though.

    The difference in time could be something other than linear (could even be random). It doesn't seem like it is a 1 day equals a month sort of thing but more like a day doesn't equal a day.

    Without concentration the upper limits on solar efficiency are very low (regardless of tech). There is absolutely no way a vehicle like that could be powered from the sun.

    It is quite probably a random relationship between time passage on earth and old earth (in relation to individuals going back in time). I think we're thinking way too hard about this as none of us really has a clue how something like that rift would work (if it could work at all). This rift is so far out (scifi wise) everyone just needs to realize there is no explanation we could hope to understand.

    Also there is no way to travel so easily through time......when there's a tv show, there's a way.

    Not really an inconsistency... but why is everyone either British or American? Surely they'd want the best a brightest from all around the world for this?
