Re: [DML] Which battery should I get for my DeLorean?



I tried an optima a few years back, and was not impressed.  It did not last any longer (years) than the regular run of the mill battery.  

"Die Hard" brand from sears is inconsistent.  They don't source the batteries from the same manufacturer all the time.  Just whoever gives them the best deal.

My preference is Delco, but they are getting harder to find.

This year I just went to CostCo and got their store brand.  It is made by one of the larger manufacturers, but CostCo's return policy is great so there will be no hassle when it dies in 2-3 yrs.
