E10 PETROL EXPLAINED

During summer 2021, the standard (95 octane) petrol grade in Great Britain will become E10.

The change in fuel applies to petrol only. Diesel fuel will not be changing.

 

Almost all (95%) petrol-powered vehicles on the road today can use E10 petrol and all cars built since 2011 are compatible.

 

If your petrol vehicle or equipment is not compatible with E10 fuel, you will still be able to use E5 by purchasing the ‘super’ grade (97+ octane) petrol from most filling stations.

 

Petrol pumps will clearly label petrol as either E10 or E5.
