Put it this way if someone diluted battery acid down to a 10% mix would you drink it or would you wait until you had seen for yourself the effects on someone that had been drinking it for years.

How much do you value your car I think I'll avoid it like the plague until several years of unaffected motors.

Well I had 110 on the trip comp left/under a quater of a tank before I put $10 in of E10 fuel. After leaving the servo at Mt Druitt it was just over a quater of a tank and the trip comp said 195.
Well driving to Kogragh & Cronulla and back to Mt Druitt whilist racing robs old car,AU 2 XR6 & a silvia with a RB20 I managed to get her home with 85 on the trip comp so I would say the E10 fuel burns less then 98RON fuel but still I wouldnt run a full tank maybe 70% 95-98RON Fuel & 30% E10 for a big trip but for driving local doesnt matter what fuel you use it all gets burnt stopping & starting.

When engines are more tuned to this stuff they will run good.. If your engine is running alittle rich it can actaually run better...
