Usually the battery is filled with acid before it is placed on the shelf for sale. It will begin to discharge internally from that time on. The amount of discharge will depend on how long the battery sat on the shelf. Usually it is a good idea to charge a battery and check its condition before you go through the installation process. Also double check your polarities with a VOM or DVM before you do any hook up. When I needed a 24F battery for my car, I too found out that Costco does not carry it so I went with Walmart.

A: Hi Belfrybatt, I'm glad to assist you! The 24F battery is the Supra's OEM battery group size. It has the same dimensions as a standard 24 Group size but with reverse poles. A standard 24 has the positive on the right and negative on the left (viewed from the front with terminals on back). The 24F is reversed. The 24F Group Size is an old Ford designation (hence 24F) dating back to the mid 1960's. It was used in the 1990's by Toyota/Lexus and Honda/Acura. Not very popular any more.
