Default Re: unleaded fuel in Australia

Cool, .. I don't have to worry about my engine, except my carby, because I don't have a standard kit carby. I have a dellorto carby.
However, in Australia... My father just had to replace a rubber engine gasket in his car yesterday because it was destroyed by ethanol...
So in Australia, some early 98 & pre 1998 model cars are not designed to run any ethanol at all because the engine gaskets and carbs rubber seals are not ethanol resistant. However, many pre 98's will run fine.
