Does my start/stop vehicle need a special type of battery?
These vehicles have special features to help reduce fuel consumption and emissions. The internal combustion engine automatically shut downs instead of idling, and will restart when you need to move again. These vehicles are fitted with special batteries to cope with the extra electrical load while the engine is stopped. Only AGM or EFB batteries can be used as replacements in these vehicles as they have the capacity to accept charge faster than standard batteries.
