    Changed it after 36000kms. Meanwhile I had to jumpstart my car twice during 31-36k kms.

    It is the duration that is to be considered but there are other factors as well. For eg. Battery maintenance and regular checkup and battery also drains out if the vehicle is idle for long. It is suggested to disconnect the terminals if your is going to be idle for more than 15 days and most of the time the cells die due to dryness. The general perception is that anything more than three years is good life.

    I think your battery will last longer with such a high mileage as it gets recharged very frequently. Enjoy Punting:)
