use with every fillup or once every 5K etc.?

A case can be had for 108 on Amazon.  PEA % has dropped over the years tho.  Or maybe honesty in labeling LOL.

Redline or Chevron with techron or BG44K @ every oil change interval depending the mood I'm in. Lol.. .

AFAIK Redline has the highest concentration (30-50%) of PEA, polyether amine! Dunno.  Z

Used to be, now it is <30% per the MSDS.  Still might out do the Techron Concentrate Plus, not sure about BG 44K.

I guess with old man winter upon us it appears that the Motorcraft BXT-65-850 Battery is Discontinued and curious if this new MOTORCRAFT BHAGM65 (AGM) would be a solid alternative!  Z

$199.95 @ your local Ford Dealer.

Fleet BCI Group: 65; CCA: 750

Affordable, reliable and built to last, Motorcraft AGM batteries stand out as the smart option. The Absorbed Glass Mat design is 100% leak and spill proof because the Electrolyte is permanently held in the glass mat separator instead of free flowing within each cell. Oxygen recombination reduces water loss and reassures maintenance-free performance. From a performance perspective, the AGM battery boasts better recharge capability while providing up to 3 times more starts per cycle and produces more power per cycle.

Why choose an AGM battery?

Product life lasts up to two times longer
Extremely heat and cold tolerant
Ideal for vehicles equipped with lots of electronics (heated seats, navigation system, parking assist)
Durable - Outstanding vibration resistance
Safer - No free-flowing electrolyte or spill hazard..

Too bad, the 850 was a solid alternative.  You can get 720-750 CCA agm batteries from pretty much anyone tho.

I spoke with my Ford dealer today and confirmed that the Motorcraft BXT-65-850 is still in stock and available and will probably pick one up for backup purposes as my current MC-850 is still going strong after 4 years now.  Z   :)
FYI-There are many online sites stating Discontinued as mentioned ^^^
