I'm sure you know this... but normally when they leak they are to full of water. So when you charge them they boil over!!

Last May brought four 12 volt batteries from Sam's club which were marked Interstate Battery with speed fillers as pictured in a previous response. Price difference between Trojan(and others) and these batteries was just too great. Zero issues so far.

I actually located a Trojan retailer within about a 45 min drive from me.

I have 8v batts so I'm looking at the Trojan T-875 vs the Interstate U8VGC

His prices on the 2 were as follows

Interstate U8VGC = $112 ea
Trojan T-875 = $127 ea

For only $15 diff each, I'll go with the Trojans.

Wow skm2006 - those prices are close! Mine were further apart... $125-$130 was the best for Trojan T-875's here. The Interstates were $90 using a business discount.... $35 per batt difference made me go US brand! I am going to be very strict about maintenance to see how far they go. The savings bought my PQ motor!

As for leaking, my old Trojans leaked terribly and I figured it was from overfilling by previous owner as it slowed the longer I owned it. I did have a mess to clean up on the frame. My Interstates seem to be tight so far and don't leak at the end of the charge which I understand is where a little "boiling" takes place. I also use the BU water fill bottle to eliminate the guess work of filling.
