I think anytime the fuel formulation is changed significantly, the additives or blends will either tend to act like solvent and break loose deposits or act like a combinant and solidify particles that were previously dissolved. In either case, reducing the interval for fuel filter changes sounds like a good idea. There is no way the engineers at Porsche could have forseen the ethanol reformulation coming.
Do they use ethanol in Europe?

Yahow, I think your problem was related to the wet weather. Check under your distributor for indications of water seepage. Sometimes the engine has to warm up before the moisture has an effect.

Thanks,
Mark
