Haha, so it does. Perhaps I'll get around to it before winter.

Today it was rainy and dark out, so on went the headlights and some wiper use. The trip using those accessories over doubled the power usage. This does include regen as well.

I got the new gauge, but haven't installed it yet. I am very much looking forward to a gauge that works the way I would like it to.

Do you have an idea how much of the 9.46 ah was regen and how much was consumption?

LED headlights will lower your power draw by quite a bit - 30w/pair vs 110w/pair = 6.67 amps saved.

Nope, no idea. Unfortunately, I can't differentiate at all with the current gauge. Once I get the new gauge on the battery, I will probably move the old gauge to the output of the alternator. This will allow me to see the power in/out of the battery total, and just the power out of the alternator. This should give me a very good idea of what is going on.

For whatever reason, the alternator delete circuit stopped working the other day. I am guessing it's probably a bad solder joint since it's acting like it an open circuit and charging at 15V. The thing has just been flopping around in my center console for weeks now.

So today's commute was done with the alternator on. I put the fuse back in place of my circuit. It was abnormally light traffic so I was able to push the mileage pretty high. 65 mpg was the result. My guess is if I had the delete working that it would be nearly 70 mpg though.
