Some of us use a large 8D battery. Others use two golf cart batteries, AGM31 I think.

So how is 101 running?

It all depends upon what you have in there right now.

If it has multiple Group 31 with studs you will need to change the cable ends for lugs if you change to 8D batteries.

If it has multiple 8D batteries with lugs you will need to change the cable ends if you change the batteries to Group 31 with studs.

Both have pros and cons. I prefer the studs as I don't have as much of a problem with corrosion with the studs as I do with the lugs.

Regardless of which size the battery case is make sure as you price compare that you are comparing apples to apples. I was looking at one set of 8D batteries that had a very attractive price until I looked at what the CCA rating was. The low price 8D's had a lower CCA rating than some of the Group 31's which were lower priced than the 8D's.

Compare the CCA rating and then the price knowing that just because it has a certain size case doesn't determine how much juice can be stored inside of it.

you can buy group 31 batteries about anywhere.. as ECCB may have mentioend, see if you have a rural king near you.. i think you can buy group 31s at walmart. even a single battery will probably start that bus being that its summer time.

Yeah RK has 31's for $79.99. They even go on sale occasionally!
I started my bus with one when I got it. One battery fired bus 50 in 11f Kentucky winter. There were icicles in the bus.
Of course, this bus has an all mechanical DT466, so its easy to start and doesn't need any battery power to run.
