Hi there , anyone else had same problem as me ? Fuel pipe split and petrol spraying all over engine ! Horrific to think what could of happened. My A1 only 5 years old and my mechanic never seen this ever before in his long career. He said it’s a possibility the new fuel that’s out now .

The "new fuel" has supposedly been on sale on mainland Europe for a few years and the UK is one of the last "modern" countries to go from E5 to E10. I'd find it hard to believe that the UK market would warranty a different grade of material for some parts purely because we stuck with using E5 petrol until last year. After all, if you'd taken a UK registered car to, say, France on holiday over the past few years and put fuel in it there, you wouldn't have expected your car to suffer any ill effects
