Before I answer this I have a few questions
You disconnected the voltage reg with the car shut off?
if you did and the draw dropped to 30ma then I say you have to test the alternator also before you call the VR bad
If the car was running and you did this I am not sure what is going on.
To answer the last question 30ma is not a bad draw whit nothing on.. Depending on what type radio you have in it.
