    I think the OP is getting mixed up with the introduction of 10% ethanol across all petrol fuels in the UK.

    Nothing here indicated here as yet about specifically introducing it here across all fuels noting that ethanol can be in our fuels up to a certain level already in addition to E10 (U91+10%ethanol) but has to be annotated as such.

    We will just have to wait and see.
    Old diesel prices will skyrocket.
    I wish I could trade in and afford one.
    Any one friendly with garage owners who might have info ?
    I think you are looking at the information that related to the introduction of the E10 grade of fuel 10 years or so ago.

    Nope, can still get e10, 91, 95, and 98. We use all of the above in our patrol.

    What do you mean inc.? We use mainly 98 in our patrol as it runs ever so slightly better than 91, not much noticeable difference between e10, 95 and 98 though

    As all pump petrol has some additives ideally you need Shellite for a dual fuel stove, Bunnings stock it.

    I had a Coleman twin burner clog up very quickly on unleaded many years back. Replaced the burner tube and switched to Shellite and no problems since.

    As far as I can tell, Shellite is pure petrol with no additives and is a trademark of Shell Australia.

    Been running 91ron in mine for years without issue

    The original paperwork specified 91ron if you use petroleum and I stuck with it

    Used 95ron in it once as thats all I could get and it lasted an hour and clogged

    Cleaned it and ran shellite through it for a while and went back to 91ron as I nearly always had it on board anyway

    I've had the same half tank of 91 in my pos for 3 years.

    Switched it over from gas the other day and it ran fine, plenty of poke.

    Only did it to make sure the fuel pump and its circuit was still working.

    It did say that with a 60 litre tank it would cost $7 more to fill up with E5.
    There were go to's to check what cars will be compatible with E10
    but both of mine are old so I did not check it out.
    91 Disco 3.5, 2000 Falcon AU11 six cyl.
    Any vehicle with an aluminium cylinder head should be able to run on E10 without any valve seat problems. As already said any rubber & soldered joints in fuel system will give problems . My BF Falcon ute runs better on E10 than unleaded & I have not noticed any difference in fuel usage.

    E10 is also hygroscopic, i.e. attracts moisture, so probably not good to use it in any equipment that stands around a lot of time unused.
