Water level was too low in some batts. This was probably the reason the pack wasn't getting up to full charge to shut off the charger. Perhaps efficiency will also increase now that I've topped them all up.

More evidence that going further before charging = higher fuel economy. However, there were 5 days in this charge cycle (more days = lower fuel economy from battery self discharge @ 1-2% loss per day); recharge time was 16 hours on the 24v/10A (nominal) charger for 3.58 kWh
