Yuasa are highlighting the risks of using general battery lookup systems to find replacement vehicle batteries. The battery brand, manufactured by GS Yuasa, are recommending workshops refer to their online trade lookup tool, fit.yuasa.com 

James Douglas, Marketing and Product Manager at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK said: “Since its launch in 2012, we’ve helped over 350,000 mechanics and technicians all over the country save time and money by finding over 3 million batteries.

“Our online trade battery lookup has by far the most comprehensive database in the industry with over 100,000 unique vehicle models listed. We urge all garages, distributors, technicians and mechanics to proactively use our lookup system to prevent unnecessary battery related failure due to the wrong battery being fitted.

“Finding the right battery is just the start though, once correctly found, users can download detailed information. Data such as, battery location on the vehicle, accurate fitting times and location of OBD (on-board diagnostics) if appropriate. This is complemented by full OE level step-by-step fitting instructions that can be printed for convenience.

James added: “Garages can additionally use the online fitting system to help with customer quotations and other enquiries.”
