Will that cause the engine stall problem or there are some other areas I should check?

Thanks, Yahow

You can re-tune the CIS for running a little more rich and this compensates for the 10% ethanol.

Ethanol basically lowers your octane because ethanol is in a hurry to burn.

Also ethanol attracts all the crap in your gas tank.
