    Posted: 11 May 2018 at 16:35
Hi guys, just spreading the word on this -as most of us have had problems with plastic tanks due to ethanol being present in unleaded.

I've just had this email back from Esso:

"Good morning Mr. Diablo,

 

Please be kindly informed that, Esso super unleaded petrol (Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded 97) is ethanol free (except in Devon, Cornwall, the Teesside area and Scotland) and we have no current intention to add ethanol to Synergy Supreme+ in other areas of the UK."


So great news for most of us.

BP used to be ethanol free and I used to email them every few months to check the status (as I will with Esso) -but a while back, started adding up to 5%

The Govt/EU requirements for regular unleaded, is up to 10% ethanol added.

Their is no requirement for ethanol to be added to "super unleadeds" but all brands other than Esso are adding up to 5%.

Find out if you have one near you using their search function. Tick the box for "Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded 97"

Plastic tank so assume so. Don't use the KTM forums so don't know for sure. Been spoilt by being on here

That's a good point Colin, I assumed they would all have it. Luckily, using the search function on Esso's website for Synergy Supreme +, there is one within 10 mins from me. Phew. Wink

Peculiar, have yet to notice errors myself but I guess thats what google street view can be used for to see if the pump is there or not; proper anal!
