    Thanks all,

    Adrian, I have looked at the Odyssey batteries but they all seem to big for the space I have available. I have contacted them to see if they do a 063 size battery.

    I plan to put an article in the next Pitstop magazine which may answer some questions. The problem with Ethanol is that it is hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture which can cause corrosion of...
