Clev, when a BAS is attached to the engine, you lose most of those benefits. All that you do gain is better charging system efficiency, easier engine stops and starts for more frequent EOC/P&G, and a small amount of brakeforce recovery.

I drive a mild hybrid, and sometimes I really wish I could move under electric power without rotating the engine.
