New Fuel Specification E10

Postby Roger Chenery » Tue Aug 31, 2021 19:32

As of September the 95 octain fuel has changed to a new more environmentally friendly specification with added ethanol.
Does anybody know if this will damage Cappuccino parts and seals?
Internet says that it is fine for post 2010 but the Checker just says for older car check the vehicle manual. Not very definitive.
Do you know the definitive answer?

The definitive answer is in the Owners Manual, Page 1-2


As E10 fuel is 94 RON and no more than 10% ethanol, it is suitable.
