Hi there, just wanted to know if I need to worry about the new ethanol E10 change in petrol in September with a 1400 water cooled engine.

No, E10 contains 10% ethanol biofuel. Because biofuel is so prevalent in Brazil, your engine will run on a far higher proportion than that, I believe up to 100% even.

We ran Tallulah on E85 while travelling in France, she loved it! A minor decrease in MPG but also a minor increase in BHP. About 1/2 as much to fill up the tank too!

It would be a shame to run on E100 though.

Run an Aircooled on Super Unleaded.

Good to read that the new E10 should be OK for our Brazilian Camper. Just wondered if anyone knows if Danbury modified the engines in any way when they imported them?

Not as far as we are aware.

Flashpoint temperature is higher in E10. The Aircooleds won’t like it. They’ll run hotter.

Super unleaded is also called E5 (in old money) petrol, Tim?

It's what was the more expensive unleaded petrol, no?

Súper unleaded is E5 - correct.

I was totally unaware of this Tim. We've been running our 2005 air cooled on normal unleaded and now E10 with seemingly no worries. Should we be running on Super Unleaded then?? Are we damaging the engine?
