You know me well!

I WANTED to do an autopsy. I really did!

But, they insisted they wouldn't give me back my core charge if I didn't (and, worse yet), they said I'd end up polluting the environment.

So I gave them back my old battery, in trade for the Duralast 49-DL!

Here they are, on the showroom floor, side by side, for a size comparison.
