federation-historic-vehicleMillers Oils Classic Fuel Additives, endorsed by the FBHVC in April 2012, are formulated to allow classics to perform using modern fuels.

Despite the fact that mainstream leaded petrol disappeared in 2000, the role of lead in fuel is still widely misunderstood. The removal of lead from fuels and the addition of ethanol can cause problems for certain classic vehicles ranging from valve seat recession to fuel system corrosion.

Ethanol attacks rubber hoses and seals in fuel systems and metallic parts such as brass and zinc. It also attracts water which can cause corrosion and poor starting.

As an example of Millers Classic Fuel Additives, the VSPe Power Plus additive is formulated to give an octane boost and lead replacement to unleaded fuel and provide protection against the potentially harmful effects of ethanol which is now added in many countries to unleaded fuel.

The Classic Additives are supplied directly from Millers Oils in the UK.  The product links within the text below will take you directly to our online shop.
