I'm guessing my crank seals are shot.Trouble starting when hot etc.

Either I got poor quality seals or the ethanol in the modern fuel has eaten them away.(leaky fuel tap probably not helped)

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

EDIT: In fact, I'll get round to reducing all 134 of them into one cogent, comprehensive topic for the FAQs. Soon 🙂

Thanks for your input 👍🏼 You've certainly made this forum your own.

Must be so tedious copying and pasting stuff I know I couldn't be bothered. 

It does seem I'm not the only one to have issues 😁

Anyway thanks again!

No, they stick to C&W, Line Dancing and 'Le Madison'. Elvis (aka Jonny) was still alive up until a couple of years ago - his family are keeping him in the news with inheritance arguments - but Sacha and Gilbert have been superceded by le Rap Francaise (think of Snoop Chien Chien).

Argh, now I, too, am taking up pointless space on the forum.

Sorry if I'm upsetting folks by referring back to questions already commented on. - No, not really, I remember most of them being posed and commented on. Perhaps some people just don't read the requests at the top of the forum?

Back to the point. Actually, having used petrol with ethanol since it was introduced (and Supermarket stuff at that), in both fuel injected and carburettored, old and new, 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines, I have not experienced a single problem with stale fuel or materiel damage attributable to ethanol.
