I had a full tank of E10 last month, as mentioned in my link above, and can't say that I noticed any performance difference on my 'Gen 2' Tiger. :027:

I tried winter tires but just couldn't find the right ones that worked around here.  Pic of my better half at our place...at least the skiing is great!  :046:

This can happen in some places if you don't store a bike in winter.

I Will never use the E10 fuel. I only ever use the premium fuel anyway. and I use fuel  stabilizer in all my bikes just in case they are left for any length of time. I tend to fill up more often now as when I see a main garage I know they will have the premium fuel. riding in the highlands you find a lot of the small garages only do E10 so you need to pick your fueling stops. Its not A problem on my Tiger with its range, but my XJR1300 with the plastic tank I really do have to pick my stops as will never put E10 in that unless I am really really stuck, then I would only put in as much as I needed to get to the next garage. Anyone using E10 fuel I would not leave it in a bike over winter without fuel stabilizer in the tank, I even use it in the premium fuel as that is still 5% ethanol . Better to be safe than sorry. I have only ever put the premium fuel in my bikes. In the last 15 years I can honestly say in that time I think I have only had to put normal fuel in 2 or 3 times. If you use your bike every day or week and use your fuel up it will make no difference at all, but if you leave your bike for long periods of time that's when you can get problems. Remember 10% ethanol can mean 10% water in your tank, when it brakes down. Just look it up and make your own decision. Bottom line is if using your bike regularly you should have no problems at all. But if leaving your bike standing for any length of time I would not use it at all, but that would just be my choice. on a lighter note I picked up my new 2011 tiger 800 with only 156 miles on it 2 weeks ago, it was as brand new as you are going to find. Just done its 600 miles service lol.

In the UK, premium fuels contain between 0 and 5% ethanol but must still be branded as E5.  ESSO premium for example, contains 0% Ethanol BUT its not the case nationally - see the below snip from their website.


Esso Synergy Supreme+ 99 contains zero ethanol, except (for logistics reasons) sites supplied from Scotland, North Wales, North England and Cornwall.

I think for the extra 1.50p it costs on a fill up its a no brainer really. why anyone would not put the best fuel they can in there bikes is beyond me. Its not as if bike are cheap to buy so why put cheap fuel in them if you don't have to  :125:
