Metho is 95% Ethanol so no real harm.

I'd use a similar amount to how much water you have in the tank.

Your E10 - is 10% by volume so set that as an upper limit.

although if you have a plastic tank, the ethanol may not be the wisest choice...

Meh - one time.

Isn't Bstar an Aussie?

They don't have the ethanol/swelling problems down there I thought.

I have used it in both petrol and diesel cars and it does the job very well. mrs INFLUX is spot on.... between 5 and 10 percent..... no more.
