HP Auto claims that a "registration" of the battery is required for the entire system to take the smaller battery into account. Something that you can not do without the GT1 tool. I'm not entirely sure that the cars system is "aware" of the reserve capacity (it is certainly aware of the steady state output). I will let them perform this on the 27th at So Cal Euro and will update the results here. I'm not hopeful.

It would be great for you to make some suggestions about alternatives. We will all benefit from that and from your experiences. You are aware of the large physical size of the OEM E92 batter right?
