Stored fuel problems/ethenol !!
Hi, dont know how aware everyone here is re the probs with all the fuel companys increasing the Ethanol content in the petrol we are buying to 5%.
My other expensive hobby is motor bikes, one being an older 1970s Triumph, the whole classic/vintage motorcycle enthusiast group have been having 'Major' problems for 12 months or more with the Ethanol damaging fuel lines, fibre washers, and desolving tank sealants, blocking jets, etc, and causing engine damage, it will actually distroy a fibreglass tank !! The Ethanol actually attracts moisture, so laying up is going to become a bigger problem.If you search Ethanol on this site, and the internet, lots more info.
I have used STA-BIL fuel stabiliser in both bikes and my rib, with no bad results, I belive that there is a new form of marine stabiliser available in the States which is more effective than the form we can buy it here, and have heard it can be imported by the firm called FORCE, which build inflatables I think. The classic bike clubs I am a member of, are lobbing MPS about this problem, its one of the fuel companys biggest scams yet, and its going to get worse, unless we do somthing about it....
