I think you can use an Odyssey battery on these. Sealed, so no vent. I dont think they are any cheaper than what you are seeing, though. My friend that has a Miata with a trunk-mounted battery swears they last longer because they're not exposed to the heat of the engine.

$109? Yikes. Last price I heard was around $60 but that was probably a year ago at least and I don't remember where. I guess those aren't much in demand any more.
Yep - still have my fusion. Bought the wife an Edge last year to replace the piece of crap Aviator and it's been great. That plus a kid in college and another one about to get her permit means I'll probably be driving it for awhile.....

Tell your friend to save $6K and get the Edge. The interior is better and the only thing you're really giving up is the cooled front seats.

Check the fuel pump cutoff switch just to be safe. You could have water or varnish in the fuel tank unless it was actually run dry. The fuel pump may not be working properly. Check fuel pressure with a gauged on the fuel rail near the front of the engine.

It usually takes three times for my 01 V8 to start. A heavy gas smell appears every time during and after starting. Can it be the starter issue or else?

Could be a leaky fuel injector.
