ELISE, EXIGE AND EVORA TOYOTA POWERTRAIN FUEL REQUIREMENTS

Fuel Compatibility TableIt has been brought the attention of the Aftersales Department that there is some confusion concerning the suitability of E5 and E10 Ethanol fuel for the Elise and Evora.

Below is an extract taken from page 101 of the Evora Owner’s handbook (all languages), the information contained is applicable to all Lotus vehicles using 1ZZ, 1ZR, 2ZZ, 2GRFE standard production engines. Please note  that  this information cannot be guaranteed  if unauthorised modifications have been carried out to the engine, engine management, and fuel or emission systems. Lotus has NOT tested Ethanol on the Rover K series engine or its associated fuel control systems so we CANNOT recommend the use of Ethanol Fuel for Lotus vehicles using the ROVER powertrain.
