Don't need to clean that battery tray

A few years ago I swore off of cheap batteries and onto Interstates. The one in my 190SL has been abused (by the prior owner who let the car sit...) and it has a 1992 date on it. Still runs like new! Earlier this week I got a peek at my mechanic's new gel cell from Interstate in his car. We've been using these for a few years in marine applications (sailboats), and I never really thought about making the switch to gel in a car! (duh!). But, NO MORE BATTERY CORROSION! I believe I'm sold. They ain't cheap, about $125, but when you think of the damage to the tray, the car, the terminals (yes, no more corroded terminals either), wiring, etc., why not?
