Battery recalibrations... Not necessarily a bad thing?

    So, I had a recal on my HV battery pack last week. The last recal was about 40,000 miles ago, not long after I purchased the FEH. As this is the first recal after I've totally familiarized myself with the FEH, and hearing recal nightmare stories from HCH owners, I was a little fearful.

    I'm thinking its not such a bad thing. The battery seems to charge a lot easier/faster now. When going down mountains, it does hit the necessary charge level to enter DFCO quicker. I also noticed that my mileage seems to have ticked up a bit. I'm at 160 miles into this tank, and my dash display is reading 39.7, and I've been using the a/c quite a bit. My thinking is that after the recal it is expending less time and energy trying to charge the battery, and this has resulted in a bump in my mileage.

    Has anyone else has similar experiences?
