A common theme in that article is that every battery cost more than an omega.

Well, a fool and his money are easily parted, as the old saying goes.

Or to appease the modern moaners, a fool and his/her money....

FTFY, and exactly. If you choose to maintain yourself in such a state of ignorance that you can't tell that £1200 for a battery is utterly absurd you're going to get through an awful lot of money and vaseline and will only have yourself to blame. ::)

Smeared on the terminals? Of course it's a consumable.




BATTERY terminals, lift your mind out of the gutter! Higher than that, above the waistline ;D

indeed
ut its called Battery-Terminal Protection Spray
but the generic stuff will blow your engine and transmission and ruin your sex life
so only use proper GM branded gunk ££$ from a dealer that you go to
and don't expect delivery OR trade club discount  :-X
