    Modern fuels & older bikes

    Had a mail yesterday,

    Hi All,
    Great news from Esso. Their new Shell Super Unleaded (Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded 97 and Synergy Supreme+ 99) both contail No Ethanol; although will be marked as E5 (UP TO 5% Ethanol). Not available everywhere. THIS is the fuel to use in your classic, high compression and carburetted motors.

    Linky yer ;

    Thanks, I've got lots of old tat with those carb thingies and use an additive when I remember but not convinced it helps so will be hunting out the nearest Shell garage from now on

    I'm not convinced ethanol is harmful to everything running a carb. I ran my old ZZR round the clocks on Tesco's cheapest. I left a tank of Tesco's cheapest in a 1977 bike for almost 3 years and the only thing that didn't break on that was the carb and fuel lines.

    I always use Tesco momentum for both of my bikes. I remember when they used it for the GB rally car fuel a while back.
