E10

Anyone else started using E10 fuel? (I know Col has been using it for some time from a former post...)
When 95 unleaded started hitting around $1.50 in Sydney recently I happened to take a different route home one day and saw a "cheaper" petrol station when I was running pretty low.
Their 95 octane was E10, and I'd read that its OK in BMW bikes (BMW stats) somewhere some time back, so filled her up.
I'm now on my 3rd tank of E10 and have found no performance difference so far, but with about a 10c/litre or so saving.
Anyone got any views from having used it longer term?

I have used a couple of tanks in SA and I believe the LT has never run better just my opinion

Thumbs up E10 is good

Ever since I have purchased my 1999 LT 4 years ago I have run E10 almost always, it costs less and the bike runs as good or better with E10 than with premium and with no problems experienced from using the E10.

--Thats OK I don't care--

Yep, regularly put E10 in the LT. Get a very slight fuel efficiency boost on long trips, not much difference around town, but she feels a hell of a lot smoother on E10 and more responsive too.
