E 10 PETROL  Empty E 10 PETROL

Hi sorry if this has been asked before but..my 1996 has been running on E5 since being introduced .

My local peugeot dealer has informed me that I cannot run it on E10, why because the fuel lines will degrade causing a leak and perhaps a fire.

Surely E5 will have the same problem which never occurred to me untill now.

Thanks from

E5 has 5% ethanol
E10 has 10% ethanol.

Think the extra 5% ethanol is the worry for the fuel lines? Anyone else know?

I had a 1972 triumph 650 E5 soon perished the fuel lines simple job to replace. carburetor was another thing g solder on the float eaten away.my concern is if E10 will degrade parts so will E5..if all that's required is upgraded fuel lines why dont they give it as an option. 
A citroen Zara I owned conked out on me .sat beside the road turning the starter as you do hoping for divine intervention. Smelt petrol popped the bonnet a plastic connector on the fuel pipe had snapped evry time I tried to start it pumped fuel all over a hot engine.never occurred to me untill now that it could have been down to E5 additive.In hindsight should have put a match to the puddle of petrol
