It's all good unless your car is tuned for a higher octane.

If you're second guessing it that much, then spend the extra few cents on standard 91 and give yourself peace of mind. It's a negligible cost in the long term unless you're doing massive kms.

E10 has lower energy per litre than 91, so whilst it is probably OK for most people (although I won't use it) you will use slightly more per km. Negates any cost saving.

And there's that too. I won't touch it either (even the old VS gets 95), but for some, the price is the driving factor and that's fine too.

If the price per litre was substantially lower than 91 it would be a winner! Dunno why it is priced so close to standard fuel (but I have my suspicions).
We need Monsta/Pirate to talk about E85 at this point. Miss him/her.

E85 is awesome in my Redline. Yeah, it chews it. But, it makes more grunt and runs sweet. Smells good too.
LS3, E85, VVT and a blower in a VF. I bet old Pir4te would have a field day with that ;)
