E10 what is the octane rating?
The octane rating of E10 is the same as normal gasoline. However, the problem with ethanol blends is when they become phase separated (water/fuel layers). Since ethanol is hygroscopic (absorbs water) and the octane rating of ethanol approximately 114, what happens is the ethanol will attract to the water and drop the octane level of the gatosoline tremendously. If this happens, I would recommend draining the fuel but if that is not possible I would recommend using an octane enhancing additive such...

What are uses of iso-octane?
ISO-octane, or 2, 2, 4-Trimethylpentane is mainly used in the production of gasoline. When added, it reduces engine knocking. The addition of ISO-octane is what is referred to when a gasoline's octane rating is referred to, and a 100 rating is when only ISO-octane is added to the gasoline. A zero rating is when only heptane is added, so the various ratings refer to the ratio and blends added to fuel. ...

What is an octane rating?
Octane is a rating given to fuels, excluding diesel fuel,that determines their resistance to pre-donation or pinging. They higher the octane rating the more resistant it is to pre-detonation in a high compression engine. In a low compression engine there is no need for a high octane fuel. In fact putting a high-octane fuel in a low compression engine is a waste of money as there is no benefit gained. ...
