    3RD Generation Optima (2011-2015)
    I have a 2013 optima SX that I recently bought and I was trying to find out if I can use E85. The manual doesn't say you cant but it does say that it can void your warranty. So who has opinions on this?

Decided to look around online and join a few forums to check out others rides, find answers to questions and even help (if I can at any point). Glad to have found OptimaForums. Looking forward to interacting with everyone.
