My dad has ran Interstate for years in his current van and previous ('97 GMC Safari and '90 Chevy Astro respectively) And he abuses the shit out of it. He once responded to the hall for a fire and left in the rig forgetting the lightbar on the van was still on. He came back and it still fired off. (2-55watt Halogen Bulbs) In my Ranger i have a DieHard battery. So far it's pretty good, left my CB on and a week later went back and the engine still fired off. Our Mechanic swears by Interstate though.
