Almost all Fords sold in Germany can run on E10

Like other companies, Ford has released a note stating that all Ford cars in Germany can run on E10. This blend of 10 percent ethanol into 95 RON unleaded gasoline will be standard in all German pumps starting in January 2009. There is, however, one exception: any Ford Mondeo 1.8 SCis built between 2004 and 2006. These models featured direct-injection technology that can't cope with the ethanol blend. The note was released so that Ford owners feel comfortable when they're at the pump. While adding a small percentage of ethanol to gasoline is a common thing in the U.S., it isn't in Europe, and so motorists there have expressed hesitation with the biofuel.
