    Here how to set records on battery miles.

    * Keep fan blades clean.

    * Leave rear seats up when not needed. To thick down and keeps more heat in the battery. Tested on my Scan Gauge.

    * Run the AC and point the control down always to get some flow below. Make sure the vent is never blocked or the exhaust in the cargo area!

    * Use the Scan Gauge to check temps and keep them below 100s F by running the HVB fan on high speed. You can hear the fan run louder. This is one the best things you can do. Toyota runs the fan very convertive and it gets very hot! This is why a lot of batteries fail in hotter places.

    * Balance the cells once in a while with a kit.


    Do this if you really want the HVB to last for FAR longer.
