Reply To: E10 Fuel and Plastic Tanks

Just adding my thoughts on E10 fuel, the ethanol mixed with the petrol absorbs moisture (water) through contact with air , so it doesn’t store well , you can improve things by reducing the air contact area with a full tank ! the water it absorbs can cause corrosion ! (I saw a video of somebody using 1ltr of water (with a dash of blue food dye to identify the water) to pull ethanol out of 10ltr of petrol , he gave it a good shake to mix it up , the ethanol bonds to the water and settled to the bottom of the container over night)
