Can I fill my BMW with E10 petrol?

Every petrol engine BMW can use E10 fuel without ill effects but owners of some BMW cars that pre-date 1994 manufacture should closely follow the owner's handbook instructions by maintaining use of 97+ Octane Super-Unleaded which will now be labelled as E5 on petrol station forecourts. 

Please contact your BMW Centre for further guidance on your specific model.  For general guidance the UK government website may provide some useful driver information:

The change in fuel only applies to petrol; diesel fuel will not be changing.
