    It doesnt matter how much you paid for the battery you can find bad ones on the shelf at the store. I would get it replaced under warranty or at least get it tested.

    Dont ignore your charging system. You could very well have a good battery, but a bad alternator.

    /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Man where were you about a year a go!!! That was exactly what was killing my battery. Some how when I wired up my electric choke on my new Edelbrock I wired it always hot instead of ignition hot. It killed that battery every night!!! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif It's amazing how much juice that little choke pulls!!!

    Better do some sleuthing to find out what the problem is...bad alternator, bad battery, a lot of draw from other components/faulty wiring, etc.
