Hi guys, do any of you know if my 1994 rover623 will be affected by the 'new' petrol being introduced in september?
The gov website has no info regarding this motor.....

Seems Hondas will tolerate the inferior fuel.

Cheaper to produce, but will the price come down?

I wonder to what extent the word "tolerate" may be true? From what I've heard, I may change my routine so that I don't fill the tank to any more than I will use over a period of say two weeks (I don't do high mileage most weeks). From what I hear, the new fuel begins to deteriorate pretty quickly. I'm not too sure what does on; I wonder if the alcohol results in the
uptake of water vapour from the atmosphere?

While the Gov website says that Hondas with the PGM F1 fuel system will be OK, I think it will be best to proceed with a little caution.

Might be a bit like the Shell FUBAR many years ago when their super petrol wrecked engines

I believe you will still be able to get "normal" petrol, but the price will rise. Lots of vintage cars, and lots of stuff with small engines with carbs with brass bit will not be happy with E10.

It will not affect your Rover 623 except if the thermostat or the EGR valve is bad that can make a low performance and increase fuel consumption.
