Can I Store My Battery on a Concrete Floor?

Battery cases made of plastic do not leak and can be stored on nearly any surface, including a surface with standing water with no negative effects. Old Battery cases made of inferior material, such as hard rubber or tar, would develop micro cracks over time and become porous, which when left on wet ground or damp concrete would begin to self-discharge. more...

Does Starting My Motorcycle in the Winter Charge the Battery?

While starting your bike every few weeks in the winter may be good for the mechanics of it, it could end up harming your battery. Your vehicle's charging system does not truly ramp up until it gets far above idle, sometimes as high as 5000rpm! Unless you hold'er wide open for 10 or 15 minutes, you may not get enough of a charge. You either need to keep it on a decent maintenance charger, such as a Battery Tender, or you need to suck it up and go for a 20+ mile ride every couple weeks! more...

How Often Should I Charge My Motorcycle, ATV or Boat Battery?

You should either charge your battery every 30 days or so, or consider getting a smart charger to maintain your battery all the time. These new smart chargers will hold the voltage at its prime voltage, while reducing the current to almost nil, thus preventing overcharge even when left on for months at a time. A battery will self-discharge over time, even while not in use or connected to anything, thus the benefit of constant maintenance charger. more...

How Do I Keep My RV Battery Charged When in Storage?

If your starting battery is going dead in about a month while your vehicle is in storage, it would be fair to assume you are using about 60-75 amps (typical RV sized starting battery) in that period. You will need to figure out how much drain you have and then estimate your drain per day. All that is need from here is to select a panel that will produce the right amount of amps. more...

Cost Benefit Ratio

Because of their initial industrial intent, all of the liquid chemistry products we offer are very concentrated. We have found most ‘off the shelf’ automotive consumer products are diluted for retail sales. Can you tell which one will give you more value for you money? more...

PRI-G FAQ and Dramatic Benefits

By comparison, gasoline today is initially much cleaner than gasoline sold 10 or 20 years ago when it is first produced. However, today’s fuels are less stable today because they are produced through cracking processes versus the less efficient “straight-run” processes used years ago. As a result, today’s fuels deteriorate at much faster rates - resulting in excessive carbon build-up in your engine. Given the varying length of time it takes for fuel to be consumed after refining, it is wise to freshen fuels every tank full with PRI-G to ensure maximum combustion and performance. more...

PRI-D FAQ and Dramatic Benefits

Given the fact that literally thousands of fuel additives are offered on the market, engine manufacturers have no way of monitoring or testing the claims of so many products - making it difficult to determine specific products that are safe to use. However, PRI chemistry does not alter any fuel specifications issued by engine manufacturers - specifications by which manufacturers judge whether or not a particular fuel affects safe engine operation. PRI has been safely used in thousands of engine types. more...
