Your method seems very useful only if there is enough battery remain so at least I can read the numbers. Sometimes my battery totally gets drained.

0.040A or 40mA is normal current flow when the car is in sleep mode. It's for maintain a clock, an alarm and other functions and 40mA is a tiny amount of current flow which should not affect on battery.

Few years ago I parked my bimmer for 4 months and it still started the engine very well.

This is getting really annoying.
My friend had the same issue of his E46. He would come to start the car in the morning and the battery would be dead. Pinpointed it to FSR and he had to unplug the battery everytime he came home before his new FSR would arrive in the mail. He used to complain about it everytime I saw him, I can see how it can be a very frustrating situation.

Let us know how your situation turns out.
