Cheap power

I used to own a motor factors when unleaded petrol came to the UK. First all the older mainly British cars burned valves and got junked any older British cars left the fuel seals eroded and gave out when the oil companies started to use ethanol as an octane booster, but every one who said that brass and aluminium parts in cars was proved wrong. Ethanol does erode some rubber parts designed to be used with leaded petrol but the seals in Webber's and Fords generally have seals that were made for many markets and even those in cars as old as mine are nearly always resistant.
