Not noticed any difference in running with the new car but it is supposed to run on E10. I will be doing a 260 mile drive Saturday so see how the mpg is affected. I would expect about 38mpg up to 42 mpg on this run which is nearly all motorway/dual carriageway at 70 to 75 mph. been out on the old bike today with 98 octane fuel which is rated E5 so still runs perfect. that one will always run on the premium fuel so dont expect problems apart from tank rusting. None of the Grandchildren Ford fiestas have any running problems. That is 3 of them with 15 year old cars.
The mpg will be the interesting feature. I do a set route every week and get 42mpg every time so i will notice any dip on that route
Thank you for your support...
