Larry, your car should be charging at 14.5 volts. 17 volts will burn out your headlights and tail lights too soon. Long stretches of time at 17 volts will overheat your battery and start spewing acid out the top. Why would you take electrolyte out?

I know nothing about your charging system. If you tell us what you have maybe we can help. - Dave
