    You can make your own ethanol free fuel by putting some fuel in a pressure cooker and boiling it for an hour... it’s best if you use an open fire though, ‘coz it can smell a bit in the house!!!

    Actually, E-free is tricky to find round our way... it’s all the classic bike owners I feel sorry for, a proper pita!

    ps - don’t do the first thing in my post, it’ll kill you and burn your family... just saying!

    most are aluminum nowadays, but composites are worse. If you have ethanol in your fuel they warp and leak.

    Not sure about worse but we have ten percent ethanol gas. With people driving less due to the virus prices have dropped here in the Sunshine state to just below two dollars per American gallon. Non ethanol fuel is still available. At least five stations near me sell it. It is however fourty percent higher in price. We have an octane range of 87 to 93.

    That's good news! What have you fitted it to?

    And, err, welcome to the forum.
