If you’ve never been there, you want to keep it that way. So you need to pay extra attention to one important aspect of your fueling—electrolyte replenishment. We’ve said this many times because it’s true: electrolytes are like the motor oil in your car; they don't make the engine run, but they're absolutely necessary to keep everything running smoothly.
