The FBHVC is pleased to announce the results of its fuel stability additive test programme. This research was designed to test the anti-corrosive properties of proprietary additives claiming to provide a high level of protection against potential corrosion of fuel systems, including tanks, pipework and fuel metering equipment on historic vehicles caused by the addition of ethanol into petrol.
VSPe Power Plus, VSPe and EPS from Millers Oils; Ethomix from Frost A R T Ltd; Ethanolmate from Flexolite all received an ‘A’ rating in the research which enables all these products carry an endorsement from the FBHVC. The endorsement is in the form of the FBHVC logo and the words: ‘endorsed by the FBHVC as a fuel additive for protection against corrosion in metals’.
All additive manufacturers and suppliers were approached in 2011 to provide test samples for this research which was designed to simulate storage in a vehicle’s fuel tank for a 12 month period.
The FBHVC’s conference last October majored on the effects of ethanol in petrol with presentations from industry experts. It identified three issues to be considered: corrosion, compatibility and combustion. The Federation has been represented at a Fuel Stakeholders meetings with the DfT.

I will be using New TetraBOOST 'E' Guard 15 as I have been using TETRABOOST for several years in my pre war car.
New TetraBOOST 'E' Guard 15 will be available from mid September 2012. Still perfect for both road and race use, TetraBOOST 'E' Guard 15 not only enables customers to mix genuine leaded 4 and 5 star fuel as before, but TetraBOOST 'E' Guard now contains anti-acid formulations designed to minimise the problems associated with ethanol water absorption and acid formulation - both for regular driving use and over-wintering situations. Currently in the UK, we have E5 (5% ethanol) with E10 on the Continent. E10 is promised in the UK for 2013 with E15 threatened for the Continent in 2014.
TetraBOOST 'E' Guard 15 will offer protection up to 15% ethanol content (E15). Remember that there is no need to buy a separate anti-ethanol preparation. It comes all together in TetraBOOST 'E' Guard 15. Remember too that TetraBOOST is now responsible for virtually all the leaded petrol used in the UK and for racing and touring in Europe.
TetraBOOST 'E' Guard 15 additive makes 700 litres of octane boosted leaded fuel with built-in ethanol protection. Assuming 20mpg that's around 3000 miles of motoring for £120 plus £20.00 delivery to your door, almost anywhere on the UK mainland. That works out as being cheaper than original TetraBOOST plus sufficient quantities of an over the counter proprietary brand of ethanol protection. So ensure that you accept no substitutes or compromises – order new TetraBOOST 'E' Guard 15, still the worlds' finest fuel additive.
