thanks

I believe diesel engines require a heck of a lot of cold cranking current...so it's a more powerful battery. Probably nice to have if you live where temps are extreme, or you're running a stereo with a dozen 18-inch subs!

Most Mercedes use the same battery, until they started going AGM recently.

Staters and other electrical components ASK for current.

Batteries DO NOT PUSH current.
