Possibly using more current for car type stuff such as headlights, defrost ect...less current draw during the day = more current to amp.?.

Just a thought.

Another reason would be that the choke, whigh is controlled by the comuter and other sensors that draw current, is on when the car engine is cold and is started for the first time. When the engine is cold it needs more fuel and air to run so the computer has to work even more in the morning. I has to send the information to the electonic fuel pump (which draws more current when moving more fuel) and has to send info to Mass airflow sensor while it manages the air fuel mixture for the vehicle to run properly. Even if it was or is not cold that morning the choke will still come on to warm up the engine faster because an engine is more efficient when it is warm. This will draw extra current in the mornings (or after car sits off for a long period of time) reguardless of temperature. Other posts are true as well.
