As I sit here on holiday, with a faint memory of summers gone where we would sit out enjoying the sun whilst sipping a cool drink and the men burning flesh on the BBQ, I realise we are but days from autumn. I saw the good old BBC weather last night and sure enough they night time temperatures are heading south and in low single figures. Soon we will have that first ground frost and, for many, this will be the time you discover that your car battery is now well passed the sell buy date.
We had a really tough winter the year before last and this will have given the battery a good old caning. As a guide, five years for a good battery is about the average life. Time to consider replacement rather than complacency?
Enjoy the last few sundowners
