Now the UK has gone to E10 petrol i note that piaggio say not suitable for pre 2010 bikes.So my question is as i have a 2008 fuoco/mp3 what did piaggio change after 2010 to make them E10 suitable. Did they change anything or just covering there backside. I'm not interested in the pro's and con's. I'm using E10 as our only local fuel station doe's not have E5 .

It was always E10 capable. The UK is just very slow to go that route.

Shouldn't 98RON only contain 5% biocrap like the rest of the European Union?

no problem for a fuoco same discussion in the 70/80's leaded and unleaded fuel
Why spend the extra for 98 or 102/108 octan its supposed to use 95
in the US you can't get any higher then 93 i believe

And when i drove my "98 Porsche i did put in 95 e10 everybody said no good and no problems gas prices where even higher then 2.10 euro a liter

So there have been no issues with pre 2010 Fuoco/mp3 bikes running on E10 fuel. No swelling of fuel tanks or any rubber pipes/ seals going bad then.

nope all my customers use 95 e10 that ride a mp3 my quadro customers use 98 because of the shitty euro5 carbon gasoline vapor filter that goes quicker bad due to the e10, but 98 got 5% ethanol so the filter will last longer aprox 20.000km

Got 2 seals of the injector that where broken but it cannot say it was because of the E10
it look more like some pressed the injector in at a angle
