:? :? I have a Koehler 5200 wheat light and I am getting 8 to 9 hrs burn time. I have some battery grade sulfuric acid. How much should I add. Some people have told me not much at all, but how much is "not much". I want atleast 10 hrs. The battery is still within 4 yrs old. So could somebody please help me and give me a dilution ratio or just how much pure acid to add. :?: :?: :?:

I have done this with my Koehler's before: put a few drops of acid in each cell, run the battery until its out of electricity, recharge and run it again to see if you time improves. Repeat the steps. If you see a decrease in time add more water to dilute the acid. Good luck.
