Hi I'm using the volt modules - and using the voltage as my fuel gauge

What I do is I take my foot off the throttle to see how much "fuel" I have left -
When I'm driving the voltage drops when I accelerate so I ignore that number and concentrate on the no throttle number

My "full" is 340 volts (4.05 v per cell) and my empty is 294 volts (3.5 v per cell)
When I'm driving it can drop below the 294 volts - not a problem it's just the sag

Taking my foot off is not that accurate - it does go up a wee bit after a couple of minutes - but it errs on the conservative side so that is all right
