Group 31 starting batteries

My batteries died this past week and I'm looking for replacements. Anyone know of the best place to buy?

Interstate batteries makes the 31-MHD, which has some good specs. Check out an Interstate dealer in the area. The 31-MHD is a 950 CCA battery in their heavy duty section so it won't be something normally stocked at most automotive supply houses although most of them can get them delivered from a warehouse within the week.

Freightliner has a private label brand that several have reported is priced very attractively for the typical diesel start battery sizes. Check with a FL dealer or call FL parts.

I have a pair of Harris 31's at about $100 apiece. Riley Auto Parts has a similar battery for $99 last i checked. Just check your CCA rating and check around for prices. You don't need an AGM for a starting battery -a waste of money in my opinion. Flooded cell lead-acid performs very well in the starting application and water loss is rarely a concern there.

I have used Sam's Club for my starting batteries and they have had similar or exact replacements.
