Cool green swift (new member)

I would like to talk about what metro mpg test on no alternator?
I am looking into this and found that these alternators are internally regulated and you cannot turn off the power to the alternator.So I am looking into LED bulb replacement I have calculated about 40 to 50 watts of reduction in power drain on the system ...anybody know anything more about this?

40-50 watts is a relatively small change in electrical load. Personally, I'd focus on other low-hanging fruit before spending time, money, effort on that. Of course, to each his own...

Why do you think that about 40 to 50 watts alternator load is load?
Reducing the load is almost like unbelting but the alternator is still turning?
Using this with an under drive pulley should make a big differance no data yet but will fill everyone in...
What other fuit are talking about...
