i have those crappy Daytime running lights to deal with too! I normally can hold a battery voltage of 12.4 when coasting with the engine off, that number dropps to 11.8 when I have full headlights on and interior gauges too (toned all the way down .

Hey I have a black car so on hot days, you have to give me credit dont' forget the dark interior!

If your reading this, then good for you, your saving some gas because your here.

However, there are a number of things you can do to greatly lower the electrical load of the various lights. Check out the various threads about LEDs, for example.
