Notes on Usage

E85 Biofuel is corrosive and hygroscopic. Regular checks should be made of all components that come into contact with the fuel. Being hygroscopic any fuel which has been exposed to air for any length of time will absorb water, thus meaning that the fuel has a very short shelf life.

Starting the engine in cold weather may be difficult because the fuel supplied by 750M.C. is of a fixed specification unlike road side pump E85 where the mix varies with the seasons.
