Winter Puts Heavy Strains
on Every Auto Battery
At zero, Fahrenheit, a fully charged
storage battery has only a little more j
than half its normal power, and a
rundown battery will freeze.
And in winter there are fewer long
drives to restore the battery’s power. ,
When the car stands, the engine and
transmission oil congeals and thus
more current is used each time the
engine is started.
In winter, nothing less than a full
Sjwered battery can be satisfactory.
ave your battery inspected today.
And if you do need a new one, by
all means get your Ford battery now
—for safety, comfort and economy. i
