Online Webinar - 17th, 24th & 31st March 2021

Paul Ireland’s excellent book, Classic Engines, Modern Fuel – The Problems, the Solutions is written for the classic car enthusiasts who really wants to understand what’s going on inside those cylinders and why modern fuels can have an impact on the performance and the potential wear and tear on the engine. A series of controlled experiments were conducted on an MG TC XPAG engine utilising a variety of modern fuels at the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester and the results are detailed in depth in this easy to follow little book.

AHC Northern Centre has persuaded the author to join us for a series of 3 x 45 min live online presentations on the subject with an opportunity for viewers to participate in Questions and Answers at the end. Read more...
