Electricity 10. Is it really that unfavourable?

Greetings everyone, I am curious to know about individuals' encounters using E10 fuel so far.
There has been a recent surge in news stories discussing a decline in the economy, a decrease in performance, and other difficulties such as running troubles and EML (Engine Management Light) malfunctions.
Has anybody empirically seen this phenomenon, or is it only the customary tendency of the media to exaggerate and focus on negative events?
Currently, I am using the outdated E46 tractor, hence I lack a proper basis for comparison between E5 and E10.
As a result of escalating fuel and energy costs, I am considering replacing the E46 in the near future with a more cost-effective alternative. I am contemplating whether to continue using diesel or go back to petrol.

All comments and feedback are appreciated. Thank you

We have seen no discernible disparity in fuel efficiency or overall performance between our 2019 and 2021 vehicle models under real-world circumstances.
The temperature ranges from the low to mid 40's in the M135 and from the upper 30's in the 118i.

The difference may not be readily apparent, but it is important to acknowledge that using ethanol in an engine not specifically suited for it will result in a lower energy output per combustion cycle.

Typically, there will be a little decrease in miles per gallon and maybe a modest reduction in power. We are referring to a power range of 1 to 2 horsepower.

Regarding concerns about running, it will not result in any negative consequences. If my 1990s vehicles can operate well on e10 fuel, I am certain that you will likewise have no issues.

While it is true that ethanol may degrade rubbers that are not specifically formulated to withstand it, the very little amount of ethanol present in most situations is unlikely to cause any problems. In the near future, at the very least

My in-laws have seen a discernible change in the performance of their 2018 Hyundai Tucson after transitioning to the e10 gasoline. The economy has had a significant decline of around 10 miles per gallon, and in terms of performance, it has difficulties. It seems like it is on the verge of experiencing misfires.

That is somewhat peculiar given I had the understanding that newer autos would be mostly unaffected. Presumably, their automobile will be protected by warranty in the event that it has a malfunction.
My previous E39 seems to start and operate without any issues, however it is not presently being driven in a manner that would enable me to do performance or fuel efficiency testing.

I own a 2008 BMW 1 Series E87. Generally, using regular fuel (E10) suffices; but, sometimes once or twice a month, I find it necessary to use premium fuel to prevent performance issues and avoid frustrating delays.

The performance of my 116i much improved when using Morrisons 97ron E5 fuel - the additional cost of 10p per litre was justified.

Due to its much reduced calorific value, ethanol results in a decrease in power. If it were possible for me to purchase E0, I would certainly do so.

If you do not see any discernible difference, it is advisable to continue using E10.

My Honda CRZ performs optimally on E5 fuel, exhibiting enhanced liveliness and responsiveness.

Furthermore, when the fuel pump displays E5 or E10, it typically indicates a composition of 'up to 5% or 10%' ethanol. In some regions, BP was distributing E5 fuel with a little quantity of ethanol.

Typically, I avoid using fuels from supermarkets. However, I recently experimented with Esso E5 and found that it did not provide any advantages compared to Morrisons gasoline. In fact, it was priced 15-20 pence per litre more.

In addition, I include Dipetane into the gasoline. (compatible with both petrol and diesel engines) The ratio of 150 millilitres to 30 litres is 1:200.

Amazon.co.uk

This addition is atypical since it has a viscous, transparent texture and almost no odour, which sets it apart from other additives.

I have depleted my current supply, therefore the subsequent refill will consist of Morrisons E5 fuel in order to make a comparison.

I am now working at Morrisons in Amble, as I have returned to Warkworth to play golf. On my way to Newcastle United, I saw a Tesco and decided to switch fuels. I used to fill up at Esso, but it was 15p per litre more expensive than Morrisons. By the way, I recall that you are from the Amble region, correct?
