Where Some Car Owners Cheat Themselves-
"Battery manufacturers estimate that the average car owner gets
.about two-thirds of the sen-ice and life of which his battery-is capable,"
says Mr. Hilgers, local Willard Service Station Dealer.
"One of the reasons for this," according to Mr. Ililgers, "is that
the owner does not form regular habits with regard to battery care. He
will, for instance, add water every week just as directions say, as long
as his car is new. But after he has been driving his car awhile he be
gins to slip and adds it only every two weeks or every three weeks or
perhaps even lets the battery go a month without attention. Fortunate
ly a battery will stand an enormous amount of this neglect before the
effects begin to show, but they are sure to become apparent after a
"The only way to keep any battery in shape to give all the service
it is capable of, is to add water at regular intervals, just as long as you
own your car. Then if you make hydrometer tests regularly be s u r e
that you are keeping the charge up where it ought to be. If you go to
the battery service station the minute anything seems to be wrong you
can bo fairly sure that your battery will not do the unexpected thing
aud go back on you just when you need it most. Moreover you can be
certain that you are giving it the sort of treatment necessary to prolong
