Best petrol for Barina

Asked by Peter Huleatt

My daughter currently runs her 2003 Holden Barina XC on regular unleaded petrol, but I'm concerned about what we will do when regular unleaded is phased out from next year. In the past she has had problems running on E10, so I was going to suggest she just use premium unleaded until I read that premium unleaded is not recommended for everyday use on smaller engines. What do you think?

The jury is out about E10 at the moment; it is supposed to be satisfactory for modern cars, but there are too many reports like yours that suggest that's not quite right. You could run the Barina on premium unleaded and not have a problem and that's probably the best thing to do if you are concerned about ethanol.
