Having checked on the government website, it says all BMWs are fine to run on the new E10 fuel. So I've just wanted to ask if anyone has run on the new E10...

    Hey guys! So I recently had clogged cats on my e46 325ci, so I swapped them out with headers and put 90 bungs in to kinda space out the o2 sensors from the exhaust stream.
