Also just check it's charging - around 14/15v at idle.

Try your local halfords, do click and collect, you cant go in the store but they will serve you at the door,  could combine it with a trip to a food shop if needed..

Go big... Nothing less than a 14  series... My last was a 19.  Nice CCA to spin over like a champ.

Had the same problem, I've just ordered a ytz14s from Tanya batteries online a couple of days ago, they're delivering today. You can get a 10% of voucher if you search it. 75 delivered.

Dunno. Might be better to just buy a (push)bike instead!

At least then you can claim to be doing your daily exercise ....  :155:
