    I’ve always used 95 octane fuel in my petrol tools but now with this new E10 fuel what are people now doing in respect of running them.
    I’m not sure if they will run in E10 anyway but I do know that E10 absorbs water which in a small 2 stroke engine isn’t good.

    Use 99 octane then. That’s still E5.

    Don’t worry about water content, the ethanol will play more of a part with diaphragms and fuel pipes.
    If in doubt, use Aspen fuel or 99 octane, as Mottie suggests.
