ethanol in fuel

i know shane (nobody 123) has said he has used this E10 for a long time with no ill effects, i have a little story to share of the exact opposite results.

about a month ago i put a kit through a carby on an xt falcon 6 cylinder for a customer. this thing has sat in the garage for about 5 years without having been run, the fuel in the tank had gone off and smelt of varnish.

i drained all fuel from the tank by gravity feeding fresh fuel into the carby, and having the fuel pump pull the fuel from the tank into a drum. i put 5 litres of standard unleaded in , and did not run the carby on any of the old fuel at all. set the idle speed and mixture and it was running very nicely.

newly found alarm

was out the other night and an alarm in my HX kingswood went off (i had no idea it was coming from my car, it took a good 20 minutes to figure it out) but ever since last night it keeps going off only when the car is off and the ignition is on lock, and it seems to turn off when i turn the ignition on 'accessory' so this problem isn't super urgent but i don't even know what is setting the alarm off, one idea i had is that my ignition little thing is a bit broken which allows (with a bit of wiggling) to start the car without the keys, any help much appreciated
