Ethanol in fuel outside the US?

Is the US and Brazil the major users of E10 fuel? I am curious if Europe and Australia have a percentage of Ethanol in their gas.

As someone who lives in the US, I can't tell you a direct answer to your question. With that in mind, Ethanol blends are widely available in Europe these days. Whether they are mandatory blends like the E10 in the US, I don't know. Over there you may be optional fuels.

I did a quick google search on that and came up with this. So maybe someone else who lives over there can get some person feedback.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

It's standard in Canada too. The only non-ethanol blends we have on the west coast are Chevron 94 octane and Shell 91 octane. Eveything else has up to 10% ethanol.

2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, JT (-1/+0), EK, Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, heated grips, shorty levers, MotoDynamic signals & relay, plasti-dipped and vinyl wrapped (all green to black), Bestem carbon, PUIG Pro sliders, solo cowl, modded sprocket cover, TST fender elim. w/LEDs. 45,000km+ and going strong!

In EU we have E10 at 95 Octane rating and E5 which is at 98 Octane rating. Same in Australia.

I use E10 95 Octane in both 04 1KRR and my Gen 4 ZX10R with no issues. I find low end revs throttle response to be nicer to ride than when running E5 98 Octane.

Ethanol mandatory fuel blends in normal fuel is ass-nine, I can understand it and fully support using it in Diesel Fuel and think BioDiesel a good thing but for the rest it is retarded but then so are politicians.
