Re: How long does the average battery last?
In hot weather climates, the electrolite can evaporate off very quickly. This even happens with the so called maintenance free batteries. If you can check the electrolite levels, you should do so a few times a year -- especially when it's hot outside. A bad regulator can do the same thing by overcharging the battery.
