MOT exemption - recent UK Gov Consultation

PostPost by: Alasdair » Tue Dec 19, 2017 9:13 pm

Regarding E10 fuel, we have been dealing with this for a number of years now here in Canada, recent talk of going to E15!

Currently, Shell offers 92 V Power Petrol with no Ethano, which works very well in Twin Cam and other vintage engines without, fuel Octane additives. Prior to V Power, having driven many miles using Petrol with some percentage of ethanol, I have not had to install harder valve seats, the standard ones in the TC engines are just fine.

V Power is recommended by most if not all petrol lawn mower, snow blower manufacturers etc..

Holding my breath to see what happens and, if Shell will remain ethanol free?
