Re: What did you do to your xb today??
[QUOTE=RaysxB;1512624] So I got busy on the xb yesterday. I installed Ö two Optima Yellow top batteries under the floor in the rear hatch.
Great work on the xB Ray! True show quality.
You probably know this; like other type of batteries, Optima AGM batteries should be vented to the outside of a vehicle. Even AGM's produce gas during charging at excessive voltage levels, or in extreme high-temperature conditions. Their safety valves can pop open under high pressure and release vapor. At a concentrated vapor level in a non-vented compartment a spark from any nearby source can ignite the gas.
