I normally use Taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanya at Groom Auto in the mighty Borough of Penryn for emergency battery supplies, but I thought I'd go for something a bit less basic this time as I don't think I'll manage to pull-start the Opti with a bit of scruffy old ski rope

If you call Energy they will help you with the battery spec, I'll check mine as they came from there.

I know someone who passes the place every morning if it's any help

Thanks James - It's a bit tight on space inside the console, so I went for the Optima, which packs a lot of energy into a small unit, so that should be ok.
