I wonder if a stray batch of the ethanol/petrol mix E85 has somehow made its way into the mainstream?

A bit worrying nonetheless.

I would think that the various sensors on modern cars would prevent serious damage (although 200 is serious enough for me). Its the older, more powerful cars with fixed timing (e.g. Sierra Cosworth, etc) that will probably suffer the most.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
