Question 5% Ethanol fuels OK?

Curious, we have 100 Octane fuel down here, which has 5% Ethanol in it.

Here's the write up (Shell Optimax EXTREME)

Do you guys reckon this fuel is safe to use in a daily driven EFI turbo?

I've heard it's not recommended for cars that only occassionally get driven, as this fuel collects water and will corrode fuel lines, but for a daily driven car, do you think it'll be OK?

I'm considering it just for the coming summer months.
