    Is my car compatible with e10 fuel?

    As a general rule, most cars post-1986 can run on E10, whereas most cars that once ran on leaded fuel or are carburetted cannot. ... Many European vehicles, turbocharged, or performance vehicles require a minimum octane rating of 95 or 98 and should not be refueled with E10, 91 or 94 fuel grades.

    As I understand it the ethanol attacks various seals which in older cars tended to have greater rubber content.
    More modern engines use a different type of material which is more/totally resistant.

    Not sure if the FK2 and FK8 would be included in that.
    I’m sure I read somewhere that the burned ethanol mixture being recirculated over the valves caused hugely increased coking?

    Default 2002 civic type r E10 biofuel

    Hello everyone.

    Read that a new fuel will be coming in the future e10 biofuel and may not be safe for lots of old vehicles.

    Will the ep3 be fine on this fuel.
