E5 Premium Petrol

Hi Geoff

E5 should be your choice of fuel for the V6.

As E5 is more expensive some people choose to mix E10 and E5 but I've been reliably informed it won't help improve mpg and the v6 is designed to perform on premium fuel.

I'm sure you will enjoy the v6.

There is loads of info on this Forum on this subject.


Quite a debate actually. All is not what it seems !

(Japanese premium has a lower RON than UK premium).


As Frankie says, stick with E5 until, and if, you become E10 is safe.

Some users of E10 are experiencing issues.


Please continue this on one of the other threads. Search E5 or E10.

Thank you

Thanks for the additional info Frankie23. I kinda thought as much. Just wanted to be sure. 
I’m a bit naive when it comes to  engines/fuel etc. I just saw the E5 premium option, when filling up my other car so thought it was “new”. 
thanks again for all your input, can’t wait to take delivery of my Alphard soon.
