I was getting ready to buy an Optima Red Top for my e//S2 and was told I
might not be doing the right thing.
The battery is currently in the trunk area and I will be relocating to
under the rear seat in a stock S2 battery box. I figured an Optima
would be the right choice as it is a vent-free battery and the battery
will be in the passenger compartment.
I went to pick one up at Advance Auto and the store employee told me
that I should have a vented battery. She said that a vented battery
would exhaust the fumes outside the car. If I had an Optima I might
exhaust any fumes inside the car - not good.
OK, OK, I know...it was a discount auto parts joint with a likely
less-than-pro clerk, but it did make me think.
Do I need an Optima? (I guess not since the stock S2 battery was vented
- the vent hose in still in the box I bought)
Do I even want an Optima?
