          Iíve just got a e85 tune on the 86 along with a few bits n pieces. Old mate who did the work was pretty light on details -ďitíll be fine, donít need to do anything different, just donít fill up with anything elseĒ. Is that right? A workmate was telling me I had to keep at least 1/2 a tank full at all times or it sucks the moisture out of the air.

          I donít drive the car much so itís likely going to sit for a few weeks at a time. Does it need to be Ďfreshí?

            Yes the ethanol will suck moisture out of the air, best to leave it full when sitting for extended periods of time.
            Leaving it for a few weeks at a time, best to use a stabiliser, will let others suggest whats best to prevent gumming up

                In a new car you should be fine. Try to buy from newer petrol stations as well or same place.

                  I see what you did there, what with the use of plural as though thereís more than one ...

                    In Melbourne it's good.

                    In an 86 you shouldn't have issues. More when you start changing things with older cars.

                          Iím surprised weíre seeing things as new as current model Civics in gloss undercoat; I thought the fad was 3-4 years ago, and am surprised itís still going. Donít trendy colours usually only last maybe 2 years at most?

                                So, what is the current hotness in anti seize for axle/hub splines? Used to use copper stuff, but apparently high temp bearing grease is just as good.
