1) I towed the car to the driveway, the battery may be dead.  (igor)

2) You can replace the battery. (corinna)

3) I considered doing that but I don't have the proper wrench. (igor)

4) You could use jumper cables to get the car started.  (cgf)

5) How is that better than replacing the battery?  (igor)

6) You said that you didn't have the proper wrench.  (cgf)

7) I said "the battery *may* be dead".  (igor)
