Unleaded fuel in nsw

Is it fair to take out the up from the service stations in nsw?most of the older cars are not designed to take the ethanol fuel. Most of the cars we see on the roads are old cars .the reason they drive the old cars is that they can not afford to buy the new cars.i don't think to force the people who can not buy the cars to use the premium which is 10 cents expensive than the unleaded.with the raising intrest rates and expenses , do you accept this change thats going to take place soon in nsw

Shorter bonnets mean more risk of motor and other components coming through the firewall towards you and crushing you. This also applies to damage to steering, battery and cooling systems. It doesn't take much to bend your steering. Reply

Standard unleaded is not all that harmful if anything they should be doing more to find a better solution to diesel fuel it's the culprit. That crap turns everything black, destroys paintwork, burns your eyes and skin and the fumes make you wanna chuck. I live on a very busy road and it's no fun when you just clean the outside of your house and a few weeks later it's all sooted again from diesel fumes. Reply
