After day 1 my bike was a bit flat, missing a bit of grunt. Bike stopped wheelying in 2nd and felt like I was only getting 8/10s throttle.
    Got back to the UK, filled up with proper UK fuel and lo and behold all was well again. Coincidence or crap e10 fuel
    Current bike wont lift in 3rd with e10 in it, no problems with sp95 though

    Well you won't be surprised that where I am here in France folk moan just as much as in the UK about the quality of fuel at supermarches vs 'proper', with the added bonus of 'village-pumps' because there's still loads of fairly remote stations.
    Personally I've not had any trouble in 10 years across numerous vehicles but you can't rule out a bad batch I suppose.

    Ethanol is why you need a fuel injected suicide machine when you want to lay down a rubber road to freedom.

    I find 202 BHP scares me on any fuel
