Hi Guys - To answer all your questions, I have NEVER had a starting problem since my 680 Odyssey Install. I will say that, as I do not want to put unneccesary load on my alternator, I always check the voltage across the battery and if it is low I throw my battery charger on it for a few hours.

Also...my car is an '89 so has a factory alarm with the blinking LEDs on the door lock pins, clock and upgraded stereo with memories that all contribute to pulling down the voltage on the battery.

I drive my car about 1-2 per month.

I have also never had a problem with start stop situations.

I feel that the Ford Powerstroke battery that comes with these cars are just plain silly! And who needs all that ballast in the front left corner anyway!

So bottom line - highly recommended by Mr. Slow...Mr Rusty!

Best Regards - Yasin

Holy crap, I just noticed the weight of your car.

I will be happy to get to 2500 with the tank full.

Sorry, no thread hijack intended.
