They just took away our non-Ethanol V-Power Shell gas here in Sweden Car was running great when Shell offered V-Power 99 octane (RON) with no ethanol. Then like a few weeks ago they replaced it with 98+ octance (RON) with 5% ethanol in it... *argh* This even without telling anyone. Of course Shell has been bought up by ST1 and they have some BS rule from EU that all fuels should contain ethanol in the future.

My 930 is a rather highly tuned CIS and doesn't like ethanol at all. As for now, I have to fill her up at Statoil as they are the only ones here in Sweden offering 98 (RON) octance without any ethanol... For now at least... *sigh*

E10 is comming to Sweden really fast and I'm worried that they will remove out high octane fuels then.
