Running Your Motorcycle On Bio-Fuel Maybe Not So Cool

Despite fuel shortages and ecological & environmental impacts, running your motorcycle on the new European bio-fuel SP95-E10 may not be such a good idea.

Europe is rolling out the 10% ethanol/ 95 RON lead free gasoline to most gas stations as an alternative to the standard 95 RON lead free fuel. In France, 75% of all gas stations will have the E10 available by the end of 2009.

95% of all cars manufactured after the year 2000 can safely use the SP95-E10 fuel according to the "experts" (source: Total Open link in a new window). But what about motorcycles?

Well, according to some reports (source: Moto Journal Open link in a new window), none of the Yamaha motorcycles, no matter what year they were manufactured, will be able to use the bio-fuel. There has not been sufficient research on other bikes, but it's not looking good so far.

How will a Kawasaki, Suzuki,BMW or Harley run after years of using SP95-E10?


And why has Germany, a country where the green movement is very strong, abandoned the SP95-E10 fuel? Is it maybe because the CO2 is higher than announced?

I know I'm not going to find out with my Ducati.
