Thanks for that, Mike size and weight are not a issue along with a auto top up kite, cost per cycle is the big advantage along with longevity, BUT things do change quite rapidly so not craved in stone, have to sell this one first. John

Aspen petrol is not specially easy to find but Stihl do exactly the same stuff, and often cheaper.

The 2 stroke is premixed and burns much cleaner - you are not followed around by a blue haze and and you get much easier starting and you get the benefit of longer storage. It is virtually benzene free and does not give off anything like the pollutants that ordinary petrol give. All in all  a better alternative - but more expensive naturally!!!

Both the Aspen and Stihl websites have a 'dealer finder' facility, so neither product is difficult to find. The price difference is a couple of quid per 5 litres, so it really boils down to which dealer is the nearest. Any saving one over the other can easily be lost by having to travel further to get it  Confused

I found this threat very interesting, and for the last couple of weeks I've been looking at garage offerings, so thought I'd drop some thoughts, as some of the very good and techical response are long to read, and I think I missed some points.

I thought e10 was only now in standard 95 octane and e5 in higher octane 97 or 99 octane, as it is at Tesco, so I put 97 into my mower, and it misfired. I have now discovered that some garages sell e5 at 95 octane, seen that at a Jet and Merco garage in Essex. So that's what I'll use for the boat as my engine is 20 years old and higher octane is not recommended. , getting info from their web sites is not easy, so I'll produce a table soon of which garages still sell e5 at 95 octane.

Interesting observation, Marshman.
Back in the days when I had hair, many moons ago now,I used to race 1/5th scale radio controlled cars at international level which were powered by highly modified 22.5cc 2 stroke ex-chainsaw engines. The fastest cars were always using Stihl products and had no discernable smoke from their exhausts so not only were they burning cleaner but appeared to be providing more power too.
Obviously, Stihl would never divulge what oils etc. they were supplying under their label but the top drivers would seek it out in preference to the normal fuel station supplied petrol and 2 stroke oil.

Chicol, my understanding is that E10 petrol isn't being introduced until next month, so E5 regular grade petrol will still be available everywhere at the moment.

I will have to check with the technical expert here ( currently busy doing a job for me...) but I think I'm right in saying that the September date for E10 is when it must be available to consumers, but that doesn't preclude (and indeed hasn't stopped) garages from offering/selling it before then.

Got this today after asking the question as my other car won't run on E10.
Hi Bill, E5 petrol will continue to be available at most bp sites (all those selling two grades of petrol) in the ‘super’ petrol grade, bp Ultimate Unleaded with ACTIVE technology, which is labelled as E5. Let us know if you have any further questions? ^FH

Yes Bill, I think that was one of the points mentioned earlier - that if you need/want to avoid E10 then going forward you will need to buy the super unleaded type offered at your retailer.
