VW: Almost all models can use planned E10 fuel

Good news here for all VW owners and most likely also Audi owners as VW has announced that almost their complete line-up can use the new, planned E10 fuel in Europe.

With only a few exceptions, all Volkswagen-brand vehicles can run on the planned E10 fuel. For Volkswagen customers, the use of this new fuel, which, according to new legislation, may contain up to 10% ethanol in the future, will present no problem. According to plans of the federal government in Germany, this new type of fuel is to be offered at filling stations beginning 1 January, 2009.

The new fuel types “normal E10″ and “super E10″ are not suitable for vehicles having first-generation FSI engines. This affects a few Lupo, Polo, Golf, Bora and Touran models built between 2000 and 2004, and in individual cases to 2006. These vehicles must be filled with the type “super plus E5.”
