Stale modern fuel seems to work OK on low compression engines.

Our Austin 7 & MG J2 both start up no problem on stale fuel, but the Mini's hate it.

Just noticed that some petrol station have changed the labelling on their pumps.

I was at a Shell the other day filling up my daily driver and noticed that their regular unleaded is 95ron and 5% ethanol, the V-Power is 99ron and 5% ethanol.

At ESSO today filling up on of my Minis there regular is also 95ron and 5% ethanol whilst their premium is 97ron and 5% ethanol.

I guess I will be searching out Shell more for use in the Minis due to the octane rating being more suitable.

Here is an example of the pump labelling
