E10 Petrol and your gear

Are you ready for the E10 Petrol which is about to hit the UK, I think this September..  Really not looking forward to this, E5 causes enough issues already,

Wonder if the likes of Honda. Kawasaki, Loncin etc will follow Briggs & Stratton and start churning out plastic carburettors to combat the corrosion issues that the Ethanol creates.  That said, no idea how the small two stroke stuff is going to cope, badly I will assume based on what we have seen on E5 already.

Think dealers are going to be busy..  ;)

The answer is to swap to Aspen fuel which has Zero ethanol.

I think you're right Barrie. 

We seem to be selling a fair bit nowadays, once the customer gets over the initial price shock and starts using it, they can see the benefits.

Less smelly, machines start after been standing for a while, and less time and money getting the fuel system repaired. 

Once they use it they seem to come back for more.
