    Thanks for giving us the amp numbers. That’s another good data point about the Clarity.
    I am lead to believe from other posters on this forum and from common sense that everything but the motor and starter generator (and of course the HV batts/converters/inverters) are on the 12v bus.
    The question I would ask is if you load the 12v bus up a lot more than normal for the DC to DC converter, will that in and of itself trigger the ICE sooner than it normally would otherwise? Or will it act like normal and not trigger the ICE until it depletes it’s usable SOC?
