I have for the last few months been using ESSO 97 (no ethanol) instead V-Power (5% ethanol) with no issues.

I went to refill the tank yesterday at my usual garage and it appears that Esso have upgraded their fuel from 97 to 99. (Synergy 99)

It still contains NO Ethanol!

(note that it still says E5 on the pump, but ESSO themselves say it contains no ethanol unless in Devon or Cornwall.....see website below

Surely this is what we have all been waiting for?

Has anyone here used 'Tygon' brand of hose? It is a translucent yellow colour, and I have read it is suitable for modern petrol. Richard

My daily is an elderly Hyundai, which is, apparently, safe to run on E10. For the last fifteen years I have regularly filled up with 30 litres, and have consistently got around 220-240 miles per fill. The last three fills have been with E10, and my mileage has been 204 miles, 187 miles, and 196 miles. I have not noticed any alteration in performance, but with E10 at 139 pence per litre and E5 at 149 pence per litre, simple economics dictates that I will be using E5 in future!

Interesting that, my Toyota iQ is freshly serviced and now struggling to indicate 40mpg when high 40s was the norm and low 50s possible. Might not be the same usage as usual, will need to take it on a run or two and see if that makes a difference. Otherwise Iíll be getting the calculator out to see if it needs a diet of Super to save money

I've been doing some polling on the Betaboyz Forum re fuel hose after E5 ate through the pump to filter hose on my Beta. Codan and Gates are most recommended. The latter is available at a good price on Ebay. Codan is more expensive.

                      So the necessary more frequent refuelling negates the reduction in negative environmental impact? Is that partly correct? Richard
