Classic Engines, Modern Fuel – The Problems, the Solutions
ABOUT THE BOOK
This book brings together a collection of popular articles previously published by the author in assorted car magazines. Based on in-depth research carried out at Manchester University, the articles investigate how classic engines respond to modern petrol/gasoline, and the results are presented here in a way that any enthusiast can understand.
One chapter ranks some brands and grades of modern petrol/gasoline, helping you choose the best type for your vehicle, while other chapters present the findings that debunk some of the myths about petrol/gasoline and engines. Real data is provided to help you tune your classic vehicle, and ensuring that it runs as it should. You will be able to experience the pleasure of driving your classic car instead of worrying about it breaking down.
The appendix gives a down-to-earth description of how to rebuild and tune SU and similar carburettors. After reading this, even a very nervous owner was able to rebuild and re-tune his twin SU carburettors.
Paul Ireland’s years of experience and no-nonsense scientific approach will help you get the best from your classic car.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in 1951 and living in Suffolk, Paul is now retired after working in the computer industry for most of his career. Although he has a PhD in experimental Nuclear Physics, Paul is the black sheep of the family. His father and two sons are "proper" engineers. He has inherited his family’s practical abilities and a love for all things mechanical, and maintains his classic cars himself.
Paul is passionate about classic vehicles, owning two MGs and a Porsche. His main interest is in the 1949 MG TC he bought in 1967 and which he has rebuilt more than once.
Paul’s academic background allows him to research and understand complex problems. In contrast, he can present his findings to others in a simple and interesting way. Writing popular articles for classic car magazines, Paul has also given talks to groups of car enthusiasts on a variety of subjects.
