Battery on concrete floor

According to Click and Clack, it was the relative porosity of hard rubber that allowed acid to seep out and form a circuit with the concrete floor (a decent ground if there ever was one).
And yet put it on a steel plate in a car and it is just fine.
If any significant amount of acid was seeping thru the case everything under the hood would be severely corroded in no time. The car talk guys are better comics then they are engineers.:)
