5% min is what you want. 10% is too high and you are sacrificing a lot of your headroom and limiting your margin of safety.


On E10 I had around <2%, on straight pump I have <1% - and that is with non-standard larger injectors

It is all in the tune. Spend a little time on it and less than 5% is not that hard - even with inconsistencies in fuel quality.

You're right of course but it's tough when you travel a lot and are filling up at unknown stations. When I use the same station all the time I can keep it much closer to zero.
