I've been using E10 in every gas engine I own (around 20 give or take), including 2 stroke engines, for well over 30 years. I haven't had a single fuel related issue in that time other than a carb rebuild on my 2N (not the fault of the fuel).
I add Stabil to my fuel caddy every time I fill it (I'd do the same with non-E10 fuel if I used it). In some equipment like the chipper or chain saw, it often sits for a year or so at a time, and always starts without an issue.
I personally think that a lot of people blame the fuel when they should blame their poor maintenance practices.
