Come on now. Get a grip. You guys are "SPLITTING HAIRS" worrying about alternator drag and it's effects on MPG.

These alternators are so small to begin with that they do enough just keeping your battery charged.

If you're willing to risk a DEAD battery (out in the middle of nowhere) for the sake of increasing MPGs. Knock yourself out.

Medication for OCD is cheaper than AAA and a new battery. Just think of all the time/energy/$$ you'll spend just to save (1) MPG.
