All " Electricity Consumption Indicators" lines are not equal. Upper “Heat & A/C” lines show High Voltage battery load that is significant to range. Representing maybe 500-1,000 watts per line. Lower lines are 12 volt “Other System” load, and indicate maybe 50-100 watts per line. A small impact, but it gets your attention that the headlights or seat heaters are on and drawing a load from the 12 volt battery.dtomko wrote:Good to know. I don't have enough experience at night to do a comparison, but the headlights alone light up two lines on the Accessories meter.
I agree with you that brighter/more efficient headlights would be a plus.
