Thanks for your clarifications on the Insight electricals .

I'll try to do a FAS but i'll probably won't do DC-DC enable. If you want to bump start after FAS you have to hold the switch so it stay in Phase-I, right? Then you release the switch when the engine starts I guess.

I already have a dumb grid charger for the 144v battery but I don't charge in the winter. This is one of my favorite mod.

On the DC-DC switch, what would I have to do to put off my DC-DC converter when I drive? Would it even be possible? If not, I'll probably stop thinking about this modification.

I already did some modifications to reduce my electricity consumption like EPS disable, LED position lights, tail lights, map lights and immatriculation light. I also disabled the DRLs. I will soon replace all my cluster lights with LED. I try to turn off the radio some times...

Also when you do P&EOC your electricity consumption is reduced because more than 50% of the time your engine is off.
