Duckhams Classic Fuel Treatment is a multi-purpose fuel treatment designed for use in classic petrol engines to overcome the potential problems caused by using modern fuel, particularly fuel containing ethanol.
Most Classic vehicle engines were designed to run on the fuels of the day whereas modern fuels are significantly different from the historic fuels of the period.
Historic fuels were blended with tetra-ethyl lead to improve the fuel's octane number. Due to evidence that lead was being released to the environment, with the potential harm to humans, tetra-ethyl lead was removed from petrol in the late 1990s. Subsequently, concern over greenhouse gases has led to governments around the world legislating that petrol must contain ethanol, which reduces the emissions of greenhouse gases.
Most modern cars produced within the last twenty years are designed to handle lead free petrol with an ethanol content of up to 15% (E15). However, most classic vehicles are intended to run using petrol containing lead, and are not designed to run on petrol containing ethanol.
With the ethanol content of petrol likely to rise to up to 10% (E-10), it is now more important than ever to protect classic car fuel systems from the harmful effects of ethanol corrosion. Duckhams Classic Fuel Treatment, endorsed by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), does precisely this, protecting metals and fuel lines from ethanol corrosion while also combating valve seat recession.
Duckhams Classic Fuel Treatment is formulated to provide protection to the components in Classic vehicles from the challenges caused by these changes to the fuel being used.
