This is what mine normally appears to try to maintain, whether it's just my daily commute or longer trips. I've only actually ever seen it go green (7 bars) twice. Same with the red/pink/whatever; first time was when I picked up the car (dealer's fault), second was when I left the car on with the A/C running for my wife while I made an ATM stop this past summer. Beyond that, it seems to either be at or heading for 6 bars, at which point it's almost amusing to watch it "fight" to stay below 7 (with arrows switching frequently between "charge" and "drain"). 8)kellydavid said:The typical reading is around 3/4 charge - that is, the top 2 "bars" on the charge indicator are blank (=white background colour).
