I found some vehicle LED replacement bulbs.
As stated earlier each 194 replacement will save at least a 1/4 amp.
I tested a sylvania 194LL, it used 320ma, the 194LED used 15ma. I am sure at 14.4v the 194LL will use even more.
I also bought 1156 (standard bulb for inside and out side the vehicle) replacement bulbs. Each standard 1156 bulb uses 550ma give or take 20ma.
The 1156LED I bought uses 60ma, thats a half amp per bulb.

All testing was done with a battery showing 12.5v (the volts you would have it you did an alt delete).
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
