Last September when I bought my 1983 Dodge van, a day or two later the
van wouldn't start, old battery.I bought a new battery at the Autozone
auto parts store.When I have that van parked in my driveway, I always
remove the battery and bring it in my house.The battery in my 1978 Dodge
van is about six years old, or older, I leave that battery in that van
with one of the battery cables disconnected, except when I start the van
and let it run for a while a few times each week.I only have insurance
on my 1983 Dodge van, that is the van I drive nowadays.
