Ethanol

Post by johnbirchjar » Mon Sep 02, 2019 11:09 pm

I read in the "What Car"magazine recently that by next year(2020)the government want ALL fuel stations to sell the 10% ethanol petrol,(to bring us in line with Europe)and we thought the 5% crap was bad enough evil, hopefully we will still have the option to buy the other stuff(or some sort of additive)anybody else heard of this directive?J.B.

My local garden centre sells ethanol-free petrol in 5 litre containers.

It's sold for lawnmowers because they spend half the year unused in a shed.

Bit expensive for bike use though...

Depends on how much a litre.
On a recent trip back from Cumbria I was forced to pay £1-49p per litre in a motorway services (and that was the cheap stuff exclaim) which is about 14p a litre more than the best stuff at my local Tesco's.(needless to say I only bought enough to get me to a Supermarket that I knew of about 60miles further on wink).J.B.

£6 per litre! I didn't buy any. Sold in 1l containers..

Mind you, that might be two year's worth in a mower...
