We must congratulate HONDA engineers as they are trying to adopt EURO 4 (? BS4)technology.
Euro 4 fuels are low sulfer fuels. While removing the sulfer from EURO 3(? BS3) fuel so as to convert it in to EURO 4 fuel, aromatic substances in it are also removed. Euro 4 fuel thus derived can lead to corrosion of ' metal' fuel tank reducing its life span.
So fibre tank is good move from Hondas.The countries and automakers who have not made fibre fuel tank compulsory claim that ' benefit of reduced pollution ' due to EURO 4 fuel outweighs the losses incurred due to corrosion.
