Don Stenstrom’s 1985 Mercedes 500 SEL has an Interstate Battery that’s lasted 11 years and counting.

Lights, camera, ignition! Every trip’s a live performance from your engine, and the star of the show is your battery.

One Interstate® battery in popular filming locale, Vancouver, B.C., made its mark with an 11-year run in a 1985 Mercedes 500 SEL.

As a professional transporter, Don Stenstrom drives for the TV and movie industry, currently as a Class 1 Special Equipment Driver, which means he’s driving the hair and make-up truck or driving the trailer celebrities would use while shooting on location. When it’s time for his own car, Don turns to his Mercedes 500 – and in 11 years, whether facing regular driving or heavy idle time, the Mega-Tron Plus® battery inside hasn’t failed him.

“It has performed flawlessly through thick and thin in all types of weather and road conditions with no maintenance and has been a pinnacle of consistency and reliability year after year,” he said.

Don got his Interstate when he bought the used Mercedes back in July 2001. The salesman picked a battery off the floor. Don’s Mega-Tron Plus may have looked small in the engine’s battery box, but it powered his commute for more than 11 years.

“It definitely wasn’t brand-spanking new even then,” Don said, adding that he uses it daily – except when his work provides a vehicle for months at a time. “It’s had quite the mix of regular driving and idle time – not ideal conditions for a battery!”

Aside from periodic cleaning of the battery posts, Don let the battery do its thing – and it continues to pack a punch.

“Thank you for making such a fine battery!” he said. “It has greatly exceeded my expectations, and based on my experience, I would highly recommend Interstate products for any application.”

For long-running performances, the Oscar goes to Interstate Batteries for best action star under the hood.
