I use two Optima Red Tops that have been incredible in terms of reserve capacity.
I left lights and accsessories on and still fired right up many hours later no sweat in cold weather.
When I installed my new IP, lift pump, fuel filter and aftermarket inline filter all at the same time; there was a LOT of air in the system and it took a lot of cranking to get it out but the batteries never gave up!!!
