E10 as fuel?

Since 2010, all EU member states must increase the maximum permitted ethanol content in combustion engine fuels from its current level of 5% by volume (E5) to10% by volume (E10). This new regulation is based on an EU fuel quality directive. The engine manufacturer has no concerns about operating the engine with E10. References for this are service instructions SI-912-016R3 and SI-914-019R3.

In these service instructions, however, it is expressly stated that the airframe fuel components must be approved by the airframe manufacturer. We specifically emphasise that, currently, only those fuel types listed in the flight and operating handbook may be used. Non-compliance invalidates the aircraft’s airworthiness.
