Thanks for that. Good to knowHere in South Western Ontario, Canada, E10 has been available for close to 20 years now. Both of our 1995 Fs have been sipping on E10 since they were imported in 2010. In the past 11 years and combine 40,000 miles, neither car has shown signs of any ill effects of E10, the main one that I was concerned about the plastic fuel lines and hoses, none have gone soft or cracked, nor dripping fuel and no rubber o-rings have gone to mush. I expect that the o-rings must be made of viton or some other E10 compatible elastomer and the plastic fuel lines and hoses are also made of an E10 compatible plastic.
Both cars give good fuel economy, 40+ mpg and the fuel we buy is 93 RON, which is a mid-grade fuel, only premium, the highest grade is 95 RON.
Premium petrol is currently E5, and will remain as E5 after standard unleaded becomes E10. There are currently no official plans for premium petrol to beome E10....... I read somewhere that "Premium" petrol contains no Alcohol, or at least way less than the 10% in E10.
Am I wrong??
Have used this in France with no ill effect. As usual the UK is ten to fifteen years behind the times. Then perhaps that is unfair as there was a company making the same product in Scotland over a hundred years ago then came along petrol.I went to fill up with petrol this morning and noticed that E10 was available. I know there has been speculation in the past but is the any definitive information as to whether a 1998 Mk 1 MGF is OK with this stuff?
