If you use the checker it says all VX cars apart from this regardless of age can use it -
  • Models with the 2.2 litre direct injection petrol engine, motor code: Z22YH (Vectra, Signum, Zafira)
but i do not trust it as it says in the thread -
But it warns it will not be liable for any damage to vehicles as a result of drivers using its checker - especially if their car has been fitted with replacement parts.



This is from the BBC site, my car is older so even though the Government checker says it can use it i do not trust it, the more i read about this stuff the more convinced i am it will damage older cars.

How will E10 affect my car?
Every petrol vehicle built after 2011 should accept E10.
But it won't be compatible with some older vehicles - as many as 600,000 of those currently on UK roads, the RAC estimates.
And if a car is not compatible with the new fuel, it could damage the engine.

E10 petrol: What is it and can my car run it? - BBC News

How can I be sure I'm OK to use E10?
The government has set up a website where drivers can check whether their car will run on E10 fuel.
But it warns it will not be liable for any damage to vehicles as a result of drivers using its checker - especially if their car has been fitted with replacement parts.

Good to know this, was unaware of it happening, despite my vehicles seeming ok, always good to know. Hope they roll out a nation wideTV advert

It’ll be like when they stopped selling leaded petrol for older cars, someone will come up with a solution, I can’t think there’ll be loads of y22yh engines still out there but those that are there’ll be a solution sooner rather than later. Wasn’t the y22yh used in the vx220??
