Actually Jim, there is a way for you to turn off ASSIST on demand.


Wire in the Calpod IMA disable switch.

Go to IC.com and do a search for the install procedure. I used it with great success for about 1.5 years before getting MIMA-CL from Mike.

If you go ahead and add the disable switch, you will gain about 5 mpg due to the lack of background charge. Then you can turn on/off ASSIST/REGEN whenever you need it.
