Hi everybody
I hope you are keeping well?  Just to answer the question about Ethanol in our fuel. I have resurched this for the last tweve months about the quantity of Ethanol manufactures put in their fuel. I have only found one company that does not ad it to their fuel. Esso Super Synergy 97 octain does not contain any Ethanol apart from some stations in Devon and Cornwall also some stations in the North East of England. They tell me they do not have any plans to put Ethanol in the 97 octain fuel. You will notice that the pump does display a 5% Ethanol lable as they have to have that on the pump by law.

Just to clarify. Are you saying that although that fuel does not have any Ethanol, by law, they have to have a lable that say it does?  *pull hair out*

Presumably it's like the warning on the bag of potatoes I bought a while ago that stated "may contain nuts".

E5 or E10 just means that the fuel sold at that pump contains anything between 0 and a maximum of 5 or 10% ethanol

Just to throw two pints of black and tan on this observation wise. I once bought a bag of charcoal with a " may contain nuts" warning on it. This caused immense hilarity in the family, mostly very mature years wise, and general disdain at PC gone mad. How could a bbq fuel cause any sort of danger? Fast forward a few years and i meet a father who lost his daughter to a nut allergy. Now my observation is this (please don't respond as it should have it's own topic). Were people dying before of allergies and being recorded as something else? Is this a new thing brought on by modern diets/pollution/record keeping/other ? Obs over, back to the garage, need to fit panniers for scrumpy delivery to Devon for birthday party!

Most allergies & auto immune problems are genetic in origin.
Decades ago those with poorer genes died early and did not reproduce so pass down defective genes.
Now days every pair of people as expected to be gentically compatiable ( they are not ) and to have the capacity to produce genetically perfect children.
This is a total fallacy as any live stock farmer , or animal breeder will attest.
However for some strange reason people seem to think we are not animals and the laws of animal reproduction do not apply to humans.

Although the discussion of allergies is interesting, it should have its own topic.

Glad it found its way home ok. Thanks again.
Well, went to fit the taps, and the spigot on the RHS tap fouls the top of the float chamber and no amount of fiddling with the float bowl gives any clearance. So now waiting for a couple of angled spigots to arrive to try out. Never ending innit! I'm assuming that the tap threads in the tank are a bit out, as well as the rear mounting slots. I dare say I'll need to customise the new knee rubbers to fit too! Still, it looks a million times better than the tank which it's replaced (no idea what that came off but it wasn't an A10).
