Can my Alphard 3l v6 2004 run on e10


Hello Andy,


Welcome to the Forum.


There is a long thread on this subject within this Forum.


It is a contentious subject, as you will read.


Yes it can, but many of us run mixed fuel, E5 and E10, or just E5.


Interestingly, many owners note that their economy is better with E5.

Others are perfectly happy with E10.


In the end, it's your choice.

HI Andrew mine's 2003 3ltr I mix the 2. Top up e10 and next time e5. Had no problem so far. But saying that I'm also on LPG so never go below 3/4 of a tank.

E5 or E10 does not matter. 

The 1MZ-FE engine was built to E20 standard, so no issue with material breakdown. 


The key thing, is that this is a premium fuel engine, so you need 95RON to meet the Toyota recommendation. 


In reality, this probably means E5, because the majority of E10 always to be RON91 to 95
