    It uses regulated voltage control, which basically cuts out the charging of the battery if there is no need for it. It's kinda pointless because everyone sets their light knob to auto and enables the daytime running lights. I tested it on mine, didn't notice the difference in fuel economy.

    Yeah, regenerative braking systems are generally on 100% electric or hybrid vehicles to recover some of the vehicle's kinetic energy as electricity to keep the vehicle's batteries charged. And thus improve performance in that way. Not "burning rubber" ways!

    Why are you quoting me about about electric cars?

    Sorry, it was about CM-LOW's comment about "...charges during deceleration or something like that...".
