Just a thought, shouldn't they know the answer as they have all registered vehicles listed on their computers so will know how many engines would/might be affected by it? It would also be their duty to then contact all registered users about how it will/might affect them ? I've no idea, I'd need to ask someone like Burtons, so hopefully those in power would do the same for old engines.

It attacks copper, brass, some types of rubbers and other things - if your car has a carburettor, copper/brass fuel fittings, older fuel pumps, steel tanks without a sealing coating, non-oem fuel hoses (except very recent ones), you should expect problems. Time to invest in some fuel additives or keep an eye on where E5 or even plain petrol can still be bought.

This starts in September although E5 will still be available as super unleaded - for some time.....
There are lots of additives available but not sure how effective they are.

I'm glad they pointed this out -

This only applies to petrol vehicles. Diesel and electric vehicles cannot use E10 petrol.


Cos I was about to try some in my charge port



Really though if someone needs that pointed, should they be asking them about anything related to cars??

Really it's a very long time since I've seen that for sale. I thought the additive market and conversions had made that obsolete.

There's a few more Mclarens round here than Aberdeen maybe?

Most filling stations round my way still sell super unleaded. Often it's the BMW 316i drivers (with M badges) filling up with it.

I'm at the tight end of the scale and fill up with the cheapest one
