    I couldn't find distilled water anywhere in Wal-Mart except in the baby formula aisle. Ok, distilled water is distilled water. Next time I rode my Harley the Volt meter kept going down and down. We decided not to stop at the beach and went straight home before it died. Voltage then 8 V. I looked at the distilled water jug and there's tiny writing, "with added minerals for flavor." New battery required. I bought a sealed gel battery that hopefully will last longer in the Texas heat.

    You missed another key point: Always ensure that the top of the battery surface is clean. If it's covered in grease & grime, a charge can run through that grunge.

    Shouldn't you remove the leads and clean the terminals and leads separately?

    Did something similar on our 2017 Corolla battery wasnt completely shot yet but, went ahead and replaced it with like a 750 or something like cold crank amp battery. The one it came with only had 356 at 0 degrees. I know yeah its a modern car with a little 1.8 liter engine but, still the original battery on it only had 6 more cold cranking amps than my riding mower battery does at 0 degrees. I have found using as you said the batteries with more cold cranking amps often last longer. I have had decent luck so far with autocraft gold series from advance only thing I will buy from advance is that battery. The first one I bought car it was in engine let go in it and gave it to my neighbors for thier 2015 rav4 as our car that quit was a Toyota Sienna and the terminals were in the same position on thier rav as our van and they needed a battery and it still starts the little 2.5 in their rav4 up no problem. It will be two years old come October so we will see how long they continue to get out of it.

    I was going through batteries like once a year and just thought it was that i didnt drive it much and it gets cold. Soon enough i my altenator went out and ended up overcharging the battery. Luckily i bought it at costco ao i got a free one lol
