Default Interior lighting current draw

What is the current draw of the interior lights? I have changed the lights in the door, the under dash lights and the overhead lights and even the glove compartment light to LED and i am getting an amp draw of 1.64 amps total. There are 10 194 bulbs and 6 of the long bulbs (forget part number) so I should be saving a substancial amount of power. If someone could go out and quickly toss an ammeter on theyre SSE that would be great, or if anyne knows off hand. I cant just put the bulbs back in because everything is modded to allow for LEDs.
