Alfa 156 E10?
« on: October 22, 2019, 07:31:08 PM »
Hi all,

I am a student and running my 2001 156 on the recommended 95 is going to kill me financially. Is it harmful to use 91 or E10 in my car? Very curious...

Kind regards,
Zacariah

Hi Zacariah
Refer to a previous post on the subject of fuel on Alfas post 1999 and the simple answer is NO!  edit "DO NOT USE E10 or 91RON petrol".

Bonno means NO, DON'T USE 91 or E10.

In the bigger scheme of things, the price per litre won't make a lot of difference, even on student 'wages'.

Agreed, NO! Don't run on anything less than 95 Octane.

(Initially I also was a little unsure which way Bonno's "No" was meant to go  ;D )

Just to be absolutely clear "DO NOT USE E10 or 91 RON".
