Most guys just replace their normal starting battery with a lead acid deep cycle battery. My group 24 (probably ~70Ah) battery in my Paseo would easily get me back and forth to work a little over 40 miles when I had that commute. It was fine even with my fan blasting in summer, and wipers/headlights going in rain.
