I mentioned this topic a few weeks ago and was told by members that  E10 was suitable for my 370z Nismo..this is incorrect ive been to three reputable petrol stations Bp ultimate. shell V Power and esso supreme. And they are all E5 ..The E10 is unleaded 95 octane...so just thought id put this out there again.

Hi

I think the confusion here is RON v E.

95RON, E5 or E10, NOT ideal for your 370z Nismo.

97/8/9RON, E5 or E10, suitable for your 370z Nismo.

It appears that, at the moment, only 95RON is changing to E10.

I hope that makes sense.

I could be completely wrong, I'm definitely not a motion lotion expert, but that's my understanding anyway.

My Wife's 2017 Lexus NX has a label on the inside of the filler cap that clearly states 95RON E5 or E10 is the fuel to use for it.

Cheers

John, I believe that is correct. The articles on the radio concerned with the introduction of E10 which I have heard have all advised “owners of cars older than 2011 or owners unsure about the suitability of E10 for their vehicle should use Super (ie RON 97/8/9) as this remains E5”.

Do you trust the government 

They'd be pretty stupid to publish something like that online if it was incorrect (I would imagine they have spoken to all the various manufacturers to confirm the information - I would hope!)
