New E10 petrol grade. Ople manta b 1.8 GT/J 1982


Recommended Posts

Hi All. Just enquiring as to the potential issues this higher bioethanol fuel might cause in our engine.

Checked the government web not listed. When we tried the higher E5 V-power it did not like it.

Could the E5 and E10 be mixed at a ratio to compensate the E10?


We have previously renewed all the fuel lines and repaired the pump and had the carburettor refurbished a few year back.


Any info thoughts would be greatly appreciated

Hi Thanks for the quick reply. And also very luckily we have just one Esso station near us. We used to have a few. Will give it a go. 

Just remember when we used V power it pinked and overran. Tried a few things but reverted back to normal fuel. Did not know Esso was ethanol free. But will check locally as the web says some areas it contains ethanol.


Many thanks.

not noticed any running differences at all.either good or bad but at least iknow its ethanol free so il be using it in all mine for now.

It will produce a little more power, but virtually unnoticeable unless you are chasing tenths on the 1/4 🙂
