Newspapers today are full of the story about E10 fuel being made ‘compulsory’ as from next year - any thoughts on the effects ,if any, on our vehicles?

Above my pay-grade, but according to the link below, shd be fine. May rot some hoses, but after 20 yrs they probably need replacing anyway. The GEMS may well learn the difference in performance terms, but others here knoe way more than me.

Looks encouraging- no doubt more advice will be available nearer the changeover.
