blitze 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.

Porschenut 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.

SkyDork 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.

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.
