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:)

Absolutely. You'll add 1/10th of a mile over the course of a year by switching to LED. :)

I actually don't know the number, but suspect it's very, very small. To test, turn off your lights during the day and see if you can even notice a range difference. I suspect not, but could be proved wrong.
