I sometimes use 10% ethanol in my 1988 930 cabrio. I drive almost on a daily basis and service the car religiously. However, my flexible fuel return line from the engine burst a short distance from my house a few months ago. Fortunately, there was no fire. I found this rupture to be very odd but I unscientifically suspect it could have something to do with the 10%? Generally, the flexible fuel lines look pretty robust. Maybe the rubber was weakened by the ethanol? Is this possible? Anyway, if your car is more than 15 years old, I would highly suggest that you replace the flexible fuel lines to avoid explosions, fires, charred 930s etc. Seriously, it could save your life.
