E10

E10 doesn't promote water build up it absorbs its. This is why the tech sheet for E10 recommends dipping the tank daily by the console operator to check for water.


Doesn't the ethanol promote water build up in your fuel system?

Absorbing it meaning it gets burnt in the fuel combustion process?

It's suitable for E10- but I look at it being only marginally better than the old basic 91ron. I used it once not long after I bought mine (L98, not L76) as it was all I could get in a pinch, and the car idled rough as guts and was hard to start. Hated it! For me, it's definitely worth spending the extra on BP Ultimate. I haven't used anything else since.

I thought that an 07 Caprice would have an L98?

Yeah people who put ethanol in their cars are asking for trouble imo. I use BP Ultimate exclusively.
