    The way this thread reads: The people who don't like or hate e10. Don't use it. Therefore have no real world evidence. Only "statistics" they've googled.

    The people who use it have had none or next to no issues using it. In the real world my 406 uses it and never had a problem. How come statistics tell me I should have had a problem? Who's lying out there?

    Josh Dowling was quite scathing of E10 on Motortorque last night Nightlife featuring motortorque with Josh Dowling - Nightlife - ABC Radio (scroll to 5m40s)

    You guys are so full of shit. If he wants to use E10 in his 406 let him, nothing will happen we've proved it for well over a million kms. We've been using it constantly since it came out and nothing ever goes wrong.

    Started with my old Suby L series, over 400,000km
    Our Mi16 was over 500,000 until it got written off.
    My brothers BX16v is over 600,000

    Chris's (Cav91) 406 V6 is over 400,000 now and we still use it as our prefered tow car.
    Our Kangoo uses solely E10 and is up to 270,000 so far.

    Even Chris's wifes brand new Koleos is up to 30,000 now and no problems.

    Even my daughters Dunnydoor ute uses it, everything else falls apart but the fuel system is reliable.

    There's been a list of cars I've forgotten about, my 18GTS, my 17 Gordini, all of Chris's Mi16's all used it and never ever have we seen any problems so all these so called "experts" are full of shit.

    If you want to use it just do it you wont have a problem.

    Oh dear, there you go again dealing in evidence when a story/conspiracy is sooo much more exciting. :-)

    Just for fun I zeroíd the trip calculator at Kalkallo on the fly, and at the freeway exit after ~ 80 kms it showed average consumption 4.8, average speed 87 kph and on 100% E10/95.
    The wind a moderate crosswind and traffic light.
    Cost - < 7c/km. Simply unbeatable.

    Cost for fuel anyway, add the amortized cost of rego, insurance, maintenance etc etc and the cost per KM may be a somewhat more realistic figure

    Obviously fuel is a minor cost but that doesnít stop endless ranting about being ripped off .....as if itís the major cost of motoring.
    If youíve got an old depreciated banger, do fairly high mileage and you wield your own spanner itís then a much more significant item.

    Yes, but you are saving a small fortune in those areas so that you can afford to fill the tank.

    If you want to save further change your driving style.

    Yep, you can still work on it using old fashioned spanners and itís resale valuation is minimal.
    To me that denotes a banger now.

    It might be but if it keeps your tank clean then surely this is a good thing. Nes't pas?
