Battery gauge never gets past half full

I just bought a 2001 insight, with 59,000 miles on it. I am trying to find out if the battery is charging properly, or do I have a potential problem. The charge and assist seem to be working as they should but the charge of the IMA batteries, in the week I have driven it, have not gone past the half way point on the gauge.My commute is over 70 miles round trip, almost all highway, and the battery will charge, just not past half way.Is this normal 0r should the IMA batteries take more of a charge than this. I have more questions, but I'll stop and see what answers I get to this.

I have been doing these things. Should the gauge reach full, and should the car try to maintane a full charge?
Also, I live in Texas and it is pretty much flat here.
The 12v battery is supposed to be new (according to seller). I just finished reading about disconnecting the 12v to force a reset which I will do. Thanks
