The article appears to be about how the vehicle runs

Issues relating to when the vehicle isn't running (ie parked / stored etc) can be seen on the FBHVC site re E10

Interestingly there's link on the Express page entitled "Classic cars may need 'extensive mechanical modifications' when E10 fuel is introduced"

From the RAC

From what I've read I would say the lack of lead making seats dissappear is the biggest issue, leaving them stood with old petrol in them second - how old does it need to be? Months it would seem, but a lot depends on keeping moisture out?
