reply from Exol UK:

"Hello James,

Our Racing Two-Stroke is compatible with E10 fuels. I’m sorry, I don’t have any data on E85 at the moment, but I suspect that may require a separate formulation given that it’s nearly all ethanol.

I would not advise storing a fuel pre-mixture for more than 30 days if it contains ethanol. There is a distinct possibility of the ethanol separating out from the petrol once it has had chance to absorb water from air. This would lead to an inconsistent fuel/oil mix.

I would give the same advice on any two-stroke product unless it is specifically fully formulated to stabilize fuel and lubricate. I would not mix separate fuel stabilizers and two-stroke oils over an extended period either, as it’s impossible to predict the outcome.

Kind regards,

Rob Lundie

Technical Services Manager"

Looks like I'll keep using the nice cheap Exol then with E10, but unfortunately I do leave fuel in the tank for a few months often, which is bad with modern fuels with ethanol. I think for my car with OMP deleted I may think about draining the tank and remixing before starting!

For those who leave premix in the tank for a while this old post is helpful about motul premix oils, but it's a lot more expensive. But it's used by some very impressive race cars so I guess you get what you pay for

Fuellines , fuelpump need to be E10 compatible. Omp linkage shimmed a little. Getting more oil for the apex seals.
I think this pretty much sums it up! Hahaha :lol: . A lot of older cars will probably break down (with fuel leaks). Quite dangerous really?
You'r so right! Yesterday a old beetle was burning near my home!

I forgott to tell what i found out! All the modern E10 compatible cars got a plastic fuel cape and fuel inlet. So look out for yours! Very aggressive these fuel.
Stainless steel screws and chrome will help a lot.
