I tour Europe on my motorcycle each year and try to run it on the best petrol. I was forced to put some E10 (10% ethanol) in it at one stop due to the French fuel station being near empty. The bike ran terribly and needed two further tankfulls of the good stuff to get back to smoothest running.

In the UK, Ethanol may or may not have been added to pump fuel of 95RON. It will not be added to 97RON or better, and for that reason I avoid the 95 graded fuels.

I've on to use only Shell VPower even though it is up to £0.15 a litre dearer than Tescos.
