I'm sure this has been asked a few times and I may be beating a dead horse on this one but I'm going to ask anyways.

My situation: I live in a town where I do about 25% city and 75% highway driving but my average trip is no longer than 15 miles. It's pretty flat but there are a couple decently long climbs. I can't seem to get my battery to charge more than about 75% of the way no matter how I drive. Which leads me to my question. Oh and a quick note My battery is still under warranty for another 6 years.

What are my options for charging my 2001 insight's battery or possibly using it more effectively.

I've read about the MIMA system and have considered it. I've also read about FAS and the CalPod Mod neither of which I know much about.

I'm not the greatest with electronics but I know a few electricians and am willing to learn a thing or two.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My mistake, my warranty on the battery is good till the mileage end. I've got 66k on it now.

It's a MT. I've been trying to break the habit of taking the car out of gear and coasting so the battery can regen so I am working on that. I'll keep reading about the MIMA system sounds promising. I'll also search the MCM reset.

Thanks for the info.
