Interesting thread. The practice of starting your vehicle about every 30 days if it's stored actually originated because of condensation. Condensation on the cylinder walls and valves caused them to pit if you let it sit much longer then a month. Today with nickel alloy cylinders (nikasil) and stainless steel valves we don't worry about it much. We should, but we dont.
Starting a vehicle to charge the battery is really hard on a battery. A couple of times doing this and your battery will begin to suffer.
If you're going to store your vehicle use a battery tender to keep the batterys up to full capacity until you're ready to use it again.
If you're looking for new batteries for an off road vehicle that needs to get you there and get you back, choose either Rolls or Optima. All the rest are made exactly alike, the only difference is the warranty.
