E 10

Recommended Posts

So that means any car made after 2010, definitely safe. Probably all the AH20 range is safe as they wouldn’t have released a car in 2008 without making sure it could be sold 2 years later.


The 2AZ-FE was used across 1st and 2nd gen models but IIRC had a minor update about 2007, so possibly not safe for 1st gen models? Unlikely though. They might have tweaked the ECU to make it run better in 2nd gen models.

There is an excellent write up on this topic on the website Andrews Japanese cars Specifically an article named “Can my imported Toyota use E10 Fuel?”

Having read the topic I have now have no concerns in relation to using E10 in our Alphard “Little Lizzie” which is a 2006 plate 2.4 Litre with a 2AZ-FE engine. The article also gives thumbs up for the 3 Litre 1MZ-FE engine. 

well worth a read.

Having done about 1000 miles last week on E10 in a 2005 v6 I can confirm that all seems fine, no impact on performance or economy, and probably negligible impact on environment.
