I don't think anyone said it is crap, it can damage older vehicles fuel systems hence the many warnings when it was first introduce.

While I am not disputing your real time MPG figures the research does prove for most of us we will get less.

Unfortunately one of my bikes, a 2001 Triumph RS Sprint, has a plastic fuel tank which E10 eats, mind you E5 did it as well only more slowly. Thankfully Esso's super expensive E5 actually doesn't contain any Ethanol in our area. How long that will last I don't know.

I am using Tesco E5 in my car they said it will be OK on E10 but it's old and I don't believe a word this government says, they want old cars off the road what a brilliant way of slowly getting their wish.
