Meter was zerod yes and placed around the battery earth cable. Interestingly I get different figures depending on which direction the instrument faces?
Either way, I am feeling comfortable with the current draw. The vehicle is acting in a similar manner as described for the peugeot, you can hear the ABS pump labour and see the dash lights lose some of their sparkle as the battery discharges.
As you may have guessed I am suffering from a flat battery issue. However, in my case I suspect the battery is at fault. Unfortunately Halfrauds little battery test box does not agree and so they are so far refusing to honour the 5 year guarantee (battery is not quite three years old yet).
