Are you sure you don't have an overcharging issue that is damaging the batteries? Maybe its the car, not the batteries...

I've had an interstate in mine for 2 years and it spends a lot of time hooked up to a battery tender. No leaking here.
By the way, a regular 51 that's available everywhere fits just fine. Not sure why anyone would say you have to "make it fit". You just have to bend the negative terminal cable a little bit. It's not under tension or anything (at least not on my car).

The battery also works as a capacitor and helps keep signal noise from the alternator down. If the battery is weak or not plugged it, the alternator has to work overtime to keep system voltage. This can rob as much as 3hp from the engine, which may not seem like much. But when you take off from a light in normal driving the car is probably making 10hp, so sapping 3 will be noticable.
