Alot of the gas stations in Aust. are only supplying E10, which is regular unleaded with 10% ethanol blended. The Indmar website says that it's OK to run your engine on this fuel. I remember reading an article saying that it could cause some gaskets to dry out and fail, as well as dissolve fibreglass gas tanks.
What do you think? Is it OK to run in my 2003 MC?

Yes, your seals and rubber components will be fine with E10, and you don't have a fiberglass gas tank. E10 has been the rule in much of the US for more than a decade.
