Do LED headlights increase EV miles?

Hello. Has anyone who's installed LED head lights in their 1st Gen volt noticed any boost in EV miles at night? I'm not too concerned about brightness, though I do prefer the 5-6k light temperature.

On that same topic, any recommendations on a reliable brand/model for LED head lights? I've read about some bad experiences with their heat sinks being undersized resulting in premature failure. Also sizing issues as LED's are usually larger.

PS: I know that technically LED lights retrofits are not DOT approved (And I don't care :rolleyes:)

How do HIDs compare to LEDs, and similarly to OEMs? I recently upgraded to HIDs from Diode Dynamics (the 35W 6K kit). Didn't do a ton of research, but it was an easy install, they provide much better light, and doesn't seem to be bothering oncoming drivers - at least I haven't been flashed yet.
