Ethanol in petrol
As you may already be aware, the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) are responding to a Department for Transport (DfT) consultation document on the subject of introducing higher levels of ethanol in petrol (visit https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/e10-petrol-consumer-protection-and-fuel-pump-labelling.)The key point is that many older vehicles are likely to suffer damage and possibly dangerous fuel leaks, if the E10 grade of petrol is used without modification to their fuel systems. For the purposes of this consultation the Government is focusing on vehicles more than 25 years old.
The FBHVC has designed a survey on petrol useage in older vehicles to provide them with valuable evidence in the consultation response. They have been asking our members to complete the survey to help them in their efforts to preserve our right to use 'Yesterday's Vehicles on Tomorrow's Roads'. (The survey can be accessed by clicking this link.

There are just a few days left in which to respond to the survey (closing date 31 August 2018
