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
https://fbhvc.co.uk/news/article/e10-fuels-consultation-fbhvc-position-statement


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

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?

I was taught that its aggressive to brass, ie zinc in the mix. Brass jets and needles are subject to dezincing.
