If that was the case, then I would see many "battery dead" F10s during my daily driving in NYC If you look at "efficient dynamics" panel under RPM panel, the blue panel (in the shape of a battery) will light up as you take foot away from accelerator or brake. Maybe, charging has something to do with the duration of idling of engine at certain speed (can be done only on "free" freeway).
