Default Oiling the batterys?

I come across a guy who said he had his battery's oiled. I guess its a process of adding a special oil to the battery so it creates a shield on top of the battery's electrolyte to keep it from evaporating from the boiling action that happens when you charge them. Has anyone heard of this? and i guess its used in the boating and rv world for there deep cycle battery's. Now i live in an rv full time and never had heard of this. Any thoughts

The reason oil floats on water is because it's lighter than water.
The "boiling" is hydrogen separating during the charge.
Hydrogen is the lightest element in the universe and will rise above the oil.

BS snake oil science!!!

Trojan battery company says the practice of adding oil to battery water is damaging. I'm just repeating what they say..... they make the batteries.

you mean like this?

"Oil in the electrolyte, if allowed to get into the pores of the plates, will fill them and lower the capacity very much. It affects negative plates much more than positives. Probably the only remedy in this case is new plates."

Have absolutely never heard of such BS in 30 plus years in the marine industry. Must be a way of fleecing the unknowing customer of their money!

OIL will NOT prevent water loss during charging. It will prevent evaporation but that is not where most of the water is lost.
