Default Proper set pronunciation? E90, E91, etc vs. E90-1, E90-2..etc

This may seem trivial but has caused me some problems when communicating verbally with sellers. I obviously know how to pronounce E91, E92, E93, but how do I differentiate between those and E90-1, E90-2, and E90-3?

Should I say "E90 dash 3" or "E90 (pause) 3" or something else? It just saves some time and confusion!

Thanks.

According to both the Oxford English Dictionary (16th ed.) and Emily Post, one should always say "dash" (e.g. "E90 dash 3"), so as to properly differentiate from similar-sounding sets (e.g., "E93").

Say "dash", otherwise you will confuse the heck out of whomever you are speaking with!

The real trick is trying to remember the correct pronunciation of "Goudey".

Then if you want to go double or nothing, you can try to correctly pronounce "Goudey Lajoie"

I remember getting lambasted at the National by this old coot about my pronounciation of Christy Mathewson. I've always just called him Mathew-son. This fella who was about 125 years old told me that EVERYONE knows his surname is pronounced Math-eson. I will admit until only 5-6 years ago I would have called it a 1933 Goo-dee La-joy.
