comment How long to you need to drive to recharge to offeset the power it took to start it?
In general they say that an alternator produces its best charging at 3000RPM on Petrol cars, it is just a rule.. they already charge at lower ones... You need to know how much ampere your alternator is 50,60,80,120.. and read about how much power one turn off the engine can take in general,, calculate the drain of power and then the optimal recharge time based on the alternators power. You dont need to drive x miles to charge. You need RPM's -- also read about petrol generators and how they charge and invert power. Consider making your question more constructive

comment What precautions are needed when charging a car battery in an apartment?
Precaution number 1: Don't do it inside your home! If you "have to" keep it in an isolated room with a fire alarm, and the windows ajar for good ventilation in case of any vapours. But dont make a habit of it.

comment Disc brake damage, how can it happen?
Oh yea.. If it just caused a lip in the disc.. there is no reason it should be grinding any more unless there is a problem right? I have seen really badly damaged and worn disc (150k miles on the same discs...) and they did not grind or anything(maybe slight feedback on the pedal.. but it was an old car anyway).

comment Disc brake damage, how can it happen?
I am actaully going to go to a brake and wheel place and ask them to inspect it.. because i just don't trust this dealrtship any more. And if I find out they did not skim it and they lied to me.. then what? they obviously have no idea what they doing, right. No point in going back to them. Problem is.. what can i do about it.

What if the dealership was lying that they ever took the wheel off and that they just made up a story. When I drove off the same horrid noise was happening..

I bet your paint job aint great too.. I do not drive off road and my question was geared towards a single stone causing significant damage to justify skimming brand new brake discs....
