    ALSO, and I am not sure on this, but based on the label E10 could be UP TO 10%. Chances are it all is, but it could be 8% or some other value.

    I agree with all your other points.

    i was recently asked if given the option would I use 91 E10 or 89 E0 if those were my only two choices. I would use the 91 over the 89 but might use 89 for th winter. Not sure.
    10% ethanol is 9.7% to 10.3% in the summer or 9.6 to 10.4 in the winter for the north east. I would assume it would be the same or not be far off in other parts of the country.

    More good points. I have noticed I get more MPG when running non-ethanol fuel for the reasons you stated above. I agree with using the higher octane E10 vs a lower octane E0 when given the choice.

    A little off subject - well a lot off subject, but E85 is a great racing fuel if you have the tune and the fuel system components to run it full time (bigger injectors and pump). I have a couple high hp turbo cars that I was going to set up to run E85 but guess what.....I can't find any within 50 miles. The stuff has evaporated on the east coast. The auto industry promotes their flex fuel engines but there's no E85 in most areas of the country to buy. Use corn for food and petroleum for fuel!

    I use the Stabil Blue Marine which is supposed to help reduce the negative effects of ethanol enhanced fuel. Have not had any issues in many years. Started using it to combat corrosion in 2 stroke carbs and it did stop it.

    i am a chem engineer. Here is the truth.

    Your engine is designed to run on E10. Its a better to either stick with E10 or E0 but not go back and forth. E10 holds more water than E0. Thatís good! It will allow water to burn through the engine. Thatís also a good thing. However, if you get too much water, you get phase separation. When this happens you end up with an acid alcohol water blend and a phase of lower octane fuel. Thatís a bad thing!!!

    E10 is actually superior in many ways to E0....until you over saturate the fuel with water.

    Went with the GP1800R...found 91 octane ethanol free locally...
