I don't see how the charge management system conserves energy. Think about the embedded energy in making a new battery every 2-3 years instead of 5-8 years.

I'd just as soon see little or no charge on cold start for a while to keep the load off the engine until the oil's flowing nicely, followed with 14v until the battery is charged, then hold the fully charged battery at 12.8-13v for the rest of the trip. I bet the increased fuel consumption over current management software in our cars would be less than a gallon per 10k miles.

Hmm, is this something that one of our aftermarket tune vendors could easily change?
