I know that it has been discussed here, but can not find anything on a search.
A fluid additive that prevents sulphation in batteries?
I thought it was called VX-6, but can not even find that on the interweb.
All I get is Leupold scopes, and U.S. Navy Squadrons.

Why is that Matt?

We have a couple of golf carts here at work that are going to be parked for the entire winter.

They have several deep cycle batteries that iirc are 6-volts each.

Deep cycle is a different animal. How old are they? You would be better off with a desulfating tender IMHO. That being said, VH-6 has been around for a very long time, and still remains on the market.

FYI...It's now called Charge-It CH-77 but I'm not endorsing it.

On a side note I’ve had success bringing dead batteries back with epsom salt.
