- Fuel Stabiliser Treatment £24.95
- Fuel Stabiliser & Battery Charger £104.95
Heard the phrase ‘fuel going off’? It is quite straightforward and does happen! Increasing levels of Ethanol have been used in fuel blends over the years and the typical unleaded fuel blend contains 10% Ethanol. Ethanol by its composition attracts water and it is this water that prevents the engine from starting after a long period of inactivity. The Stabiliser will also prevent water absorption.
With any of our offers, your motorcycle will also receive a comprehensive 23-point check carried out by our BMW Motorrad trained Technicians. Afterwards, you’ll be emailed an online video of the inspection of your bike so you can see what our Technicians see.
For more information or to make a booking, please call us on 01772 767300 and speak to our Service team. Alternatively complete the enquiry form and we’ll call you back.
To protect against the dangers of E10 petrol it is recommended to use a fuel stabilizer, to prevent the fuel from degradation. The increased ethanol content in the new standard fuel can cause numerous problems with engines, especially In older vehicles.
Power Max fuel stabilizer protects against all the dangers of ethanol and E10 petrol.
Protect your motorbike this winter with Power Max Fuel Stabilizer for just £24.95 from Bowker Motorrad.
Fortunately, Power Max fuel stabilizer can combat the effects of ethanol.
Power Max Stabilizes the ethanol/petrol mixture during operation for a longer period of time. Neutralizes acids formed (pHe control). Avoids demixing after extended time of storage. Avoids rubbery deposits, resination and paint residue. Binds condensing water. Improves lubrication. Prevents corrosion within the entire combustion system. Improves the operation of the injection system by improved cleaning of parts. Reduces emission by improving the combustion of the fuel and thereby improves environmental friendliness of the fuel.
E10 is a biofuel that is made up of 90% regular unleaded petrol and 10% ethanol. The current standard unleaded in the UK, E5 contains up to 5% ethanol.
To make E10 petrol, standard unleaded petrol is mixed with ethanol which is made from materials that include low-grade grains, sugars and waste wood.
This type of fuel is already used across parts of Europe, the US and Australia.
The new greener fuel is predicted to reduce CO2 emissions by 750,000 tonnes per year. This is the equivalent of taking up to 350,000 vehicles off the road.
It’s suggested that CO2 emissions from petrol vehicles should drop by around 2% with the switch to this new type of fuel.
E10 petrol isn’t compatible with some older and classic vehicles. RAC estimate as many as 600,000 vehicles in the UK aren’t compatible with the new fuel.
Vehicles that were produced up until as recently as the early 2000s may not be compatible with E10. The higher amount of ethanol can cause significant damage to components in older vehicles.
You can check if your vehicle is compatible with E10 here.
The high ethanol content in E10 petrol can cause numerous problems in vehicles. It can corrode brass, copper, lead, tin, zinc, rubber, plastic and fibreglass parts. These parts are commonly found in older machines.
Ethanol absorbs water from the atmosphere. This can create condensation in fuel tanks, fuel lines and carburettors. It can also cause corrosion in brass, copper, lead, tin and zinc components.
It can eat through rubber, plastic and fibreglass. This means hoses and seals are likely to deteriorate more quickly because of the higher concentration of ethanol in E10 petrol.
Tests carried out by the Department for Transport have identified a series of problems. These include the degradation of seals and fuel hoses, corroded carburettors, blocked fuel filters, damaged fuel pumps, blocked injectors and corrosion in fuel tanks.
