Along the lines of my last post (Components of a an EV), can I just put in a higher mAH battery in my Citroen AMI to achieve better distance?

Will the controller recognize that the battery is 'different' than stock and reflect the correct usage % on the dashboard? I would suspect so, as it is just a basic measurement, however any feedback is appreciated.

Also, if anyone has accessed the internals via the OBDC, please let me know. Before I invest in the bits, I am interested what can be found there

If we can double the range of this thing, I will buy one. There is plently of storage around the batteries and on the back of the driver seats. So space for batteries should not be a problem. We could possibly fit 2 AMI Batteries one on top of the other in Parallel or with a controller to switch from the empty to the full one, that would be awesome. Or if they could come out with a solid state battery

If we ran two batteries in parallel, would the charging system still be the same? I suppose the display still indicate the correct info is as far as charging time and 'remaining distance'.
