However although it's not the main reason it's used, ethanol raises the octane value, so the oil companies don't have to use as much alternative octane booster to achieve the 95 rating. Removing the ethanol will therefore lower the octane level. I don't know by how much and this may or may not matter, but it's worth being aware.
As most 2 strokes from the fizzy era were ok to run on the old 2star petrol I would think a lower octane fuel would be ok to run unless you've raised the compression ratio on your engine

Today I fitted an inline filter, hoping that will help if any of the lining starts to actually breaks off into the fuel.
My reasoning is that, I have only just got her back on the road after a very frustrating year and just want to enjoy her, so when the season for riding stops, then it will be a winter project, that's unless it causes problems before?

Wasn't keen in fitting one, until had a tip from Chas as to where to fit it ?

Thanks all for your help and advice

It’s time to have a go about getting the crap out of the tank, but on closer inspection all be very limited as you can imagine, I have noticed it’s only peeling away in some place(sort of bubbled) and still intact and it’s fine in others areas.

So my plan is to take tank off and put some fish tank stones in the tank with the petrol what’s in it and give a shake around to see if the bubbled areas brake away?

I drained some of the fuel what was in in today and no bits came out, I’m not to keen on the acetone route as I have history

Or should I just leave it until bits start to brake away, I have an inline filter on
