Our neighbour who gets petrol for me, told me that our standard petrol is changing from E5 to E10 (“super” 97+ octane, where available, remains E5). This meant nothing to me so I’ve been looking it up and found mixed messages. The couple of machinery shops I looked at don’t seem to like E10 but Briggs and Stratton (our lawnmower engine) suggest it should be OK. Husqvarna (our trimmer and leaf blower) are OK too but make more of a point of stressing the importance of fresh fuel. For my part, I’ll start putting a stabiliser additive in the fuel.

How much ethanol is there in the stuff that attacks fuel pipes on your petrol strimmer, srs?
