Less regeneration when the battery is full? Not enough details regarding your observation.
At least now I know what's a "gid"
(So I like graphs in case you hadn't noticed) I took a log last night of a 100% charge and another of my commute to work. During this drive I observed the gids being used up quicker at the beginning of the drive. However, upon plotting the data, it appears to be accurate. In this graph, I logged the V*I*delta_time into the battery and plotted the accumulated total both during the 100% charge and during the first part of my drive. Zoomed in to the top 80 gids for detail and there is no evidence of significant difference in the amount of charge associated with a gid during the start of the drive and later. During the charge it looks like just over 80wh per gid at the top 3kwh and during discharge it is just over 70wh. Indeed, it appears any faster drop in gids I may have observed was due to more energy consumption (lack of regen?) rather than "gid correction" as I previously suspected. Also interesting to note that there *does* seem to be a correction during the charge.
