    Hi All,
    I have a 2006 Vectra 2.2 Direct.
    I see that Vauxhall make it very clear that you not use the new E10 fuel in this engine when the fuel comes in during 2013 thanks to the new EU rules.
    As I cannot see garages selling two types of unleaded fuel on the forecourts when it comes in as they are already saying that there will be insufficient pump space, does this mean that all 2.2's will be obsolete?
    Anybody technical know why it wont work or what modifications can be done to use it. Thanks

    FHBVC say it will attack fuel lines,seals etc not designed to use it...it's the Ethanol in the fuel that does it apparently
    Same as antifreeze...old cars can't use the new stuff...it attacks seals,etc
