I recently replaced my battery with an Optima.  Bigger than the original. it cannot leak and has better storage abilities in that it takes longer for it ot go flat if unused.

Unfortunately, putting in the battery caused the carbon canister to crack because it was pushed up against the wheel arch.  I slid the canister up a bit so that it would clear the arch and emptied out the carbon.  I suupose I could fix it, but why?

Anyway, if you use an Optima, you pretty much eliminate the possiblity of acid damage.
