Latest range charge cycle (March 2013) seems to have boosted the CAC value from 148.07 to 148.60. Battery drops from 99% to 94% @ 1/2 hour after range charge finishes. PEM filter I have installed (last year after latest blower upgrade) effectively prevents (mostly oak leaves) debris from getting into the PEM cooling blower. I no longer have PEM temperature issues at all (so far).
