Extra Ethanol in Petrol (Euro only?)
I have heard reports that the ethanol content in petrol in Europe is to be/has been increased to 10% resulting in a much greater chance of plastic components in carbs and fuel lines being eaten away. It may be coincidence, but a recently replace fuel line in the Michalone was found this past Saturday to be leaking petrol.
Fuel lines being checked and big fire extinguisher being installed as we speak. I am wondering if this extra ethanol in petrol is a concern, particularly for older cars, and whether it is a global problem or limited to Europe?
