European Exhaust & Catalyst (EEC) has said its ‘6-in-1 petrol solution’ will help combat problems caused by new E10 petrol, which will be rolled out across the UK from 2021.
Experts have warned that the new fuel could cause significant damage to classic vehicles and some modern cars produced up to 2011.
Petrol currently sold in the UK contains up to five per cent bioethanol but from 2021 ten per cent bioethanol will become the new standard.
It’s hoped the move will reduce emissions by as much as 750,000 tonnes per year – equivalent to taking 350,000 cars off the road.
Ethanol absorbs water in cars fuel storage tanks and from condensation, which then causes rusting in parts of the fuel system where the metallurgy is less resistant. Once oxidised, ethanol can then become corrosive.
To help combat the corrosion caused by ethanol in the fuel, garages are being encouraged to recommend the use of EEC’s 6-in-1 petrol solution.
It contains a corrosion inhibitor, and is highly effective at removing deposits from fuel injectors and inlet valves.
An EEC spokesperson said: “The solution has also been specifically designed to keep every component carbon-free, with a focus on the fuel injectors, inlet/exhaust valve, turbo, EGR valve and glow plugs.
“It even reduces smoking, and can contribute to increasing MPG.
“With the RAC reporting over 600,000 cars on the road are not compatible with E10, this is the perfect chance to offer added value to your customers, while providing a cost-effective upsell opportunity.”
