      I was having problem with the battery in cold weather. Check battery fluid, it was low. Filled up with battery acid fluid, put on trickle charger. Battery works like brand new.

        will this help restore a weak battery ?

          A:

          Hi Jesse, great question! This battery acid could help restore a weak battery. Fill each cell of the battery to a level just covering the battery plates, and then go back and top off each cell equally. It is important to have the cells filled equally or the battery will not operate properly. The acid should reach a level about 3/16” below the cap ring. A newly filled battery will sometimes require additional acid after about 20 minutes. Re-examine the fill level and add additional acid if necessary.

      • Q:

        Autocraft Battery Acid 32FL OZ

        Part No. CYCLE ACID

        Can this be added pure strength into a new motorcycle battery? I mean it does not need to be diluted with distilled water when filling a brand new battery for the first time that is currently dry. Then of course I know the battery must then be charged according to the manufactures specification.

        So the question is; this fluid is ready and should be used full strength??

        Correct ??

        Thanks

      • Q:

        I purchased two of these thinking they would refill the two batteries from when my boat got swamped last summer. They did not even fill my marine bAttery, and the store is out. There should be more instructions about how much is needed to fill a battery. The folks at advance did not know either. Will end up costing me at least $40 00 if not more, supposed to be in tomorrow, don't know how it will affect my batteries.

          A:

          The Autocraft Battery Acid - Part No. CYCLE ACID comes as a pack of 32 Oz. There is no specific amount of battery acid to be filled and it depends on the existing condition of your battery. Fill each cell of the battery to a level just covering the battery plates, and then go back and top off each cell equally. It is important to have the cells filled equally or the battery will not operate properly. The acid should reach a level about 3/16” below the cap ring.

          No, I am sorry. It is not recommended to store the Autocraft Battery Acid (Part No. CYCLE ACID) (in home) if it's not used in full. There are several autoshops that will accept these battery acids. You can replace the remaining battery acid into any glass jar while transporting it to any nearest auto shop.

      • Q:

        my dad has a marine battery 2 years old and turned it over and spilled all the electrolyte out of it a couple of months ago (3-4 months). Will refilling the electrolyte help this battery to charge again or should we just dispose of the battery and buy a new one?

        How do u change the acid in a car battery?

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          The acid used is generally sulphuric Acid. Yes you can change it. We would not recommend it for anyone not trained on how to do it. In any case if the acid is depleted the battery will most likely be useless too. We would suggest you to have a proper guidance from a battery expert. Perhaps you should check the specific gravity and add DISTILLED water as necessary; about 5mm above the plates should be OK.
