If you have a four-cylinder with a high battery shelf, you can fit a Sears 22FC battery in there, but if you have an older car with a lower battery shelf, try putting a size 24 (Sears stock number 4324) in. I put in a Die-Hard with an 81 amp-hour rating for $45 — compared to the 55 amphour Varta at $84.

The biggest problem in buying batteries is finding a cooperative salesman and doing some accurate measuring yourself.
