Damage Ethanol in Fuels can cause to classics
Fuel related problems, we had several this year and all of them are related to the fact that most
Classic car owners don’t know that you can’t use regular fuel in your classic car.
Premium is the fuel that has to be used and even then pay attention that it doesn’t contain Ethanol,
This additive attracts moister in the fuel and the result is that all metal parts in the fuel system will start to rust, another problem is that it will turn into some gel, especially when the car is parked for longer time as we have in the winter months.
The result of all this will be a very rough running engine or not running at all, another symptom will be that the engine will run for a couple of kilometers and start to sputter after it has been sitting for a couple of minutes it will fire up again and behave for a couple of kilometres and etc. etc.
