FBHVC ethanol survey

Post by scimjim » Tue Aug 14, 2018 11:51 pm

I think we all know the effects increased ethanol has on our cars - short term damage to fuel hoses, long term damage to alloy components and possibly increased susceptibility to fuel vaporisation. The FBHVC has commissioned a survey to present a response to a DfT consultation document.
