Leisure battery

Well after all these years my battery still goes flat if left for a couple of weeks. I have tested the fuses and found I have a drain which I will get it into Honda to sort out.

As I work for a company supplying mobility scooters and have access to leisure batteries and a PC with battery testing software I thought it can't hurt if while I test my battery I put on a Leisure battery which is 36ah 12v.

With the cold weather and being busy I haven't had a chance to change back to my battery.

Results so far is that the car starts and runs OK even if left for 2 weeks.
I need to see how long it will go with the radio on before running down too low to start.

I wouldn't suggest buying one as on research they don't last very long fitted on a car.

I will update with other results soon.
