the 06 rav 4 has an intelligent charging system. While idling and at cruising speed(in a low current situation) the alternator lowers its charging voltage to lessen the parasitic drag on the alternator thus giving you better fuel mileage. AND upon decelerating, the alternator goes into high voltage supply. This will aid in vehicle drag to slow it down and gas mileage will not be effected.. incredible..
