    E10 fuel on its way

    See E10 fuel will be the new norm from September. Wonder what this will mean for old ZRXs? All of my bikes are 20 years old or near enough. Heard the main problem relates to potentially rotting seals and rubber parts which can't manage that much ethanol content but maybe these are just scare stories. America has been using E10 for ages? Suppose there's always super unleaded to play it safe.

    Looks like super unleaded will be the way forward to avoid gummed up carbs and rotting seals.

    Yep, I will be going super unleaded as the newest vehicle/bike I have is 2006, and the oldest is 1978 ,it's ok the manufacturers saying the older engines will take this e10 but if you have a problem how many will help they will just say it's old and tough shit , or words to that effect apart from the fact e10 hits your economy (not so crucial on a bike but hurts me with a 4,2 supercharged Jag I am using super unleaded now .
