We know that the introduction of a new petrol fuel system might have caused some confusion and worry for many of you as you're thinking "is my car compatible with the new fuel?" - but rest assured, almost all 95% petrol-powered vehicles on the road today can use the new E10 fuel.
Well, according to the government website:
|Nissan||E10 petrol is cleared for use in all models with petrol engines from 1st January 2000. Older petrol models should continue to use E5.|
|Hyundai||All Hyundai cars with a petrol engine can use E10 petrol without limitation.|
|Kia||All Kia cars with a petrol engine can use E10 petrol without limitation.|
|MG||2016 Onwards - Designed to operate on E10 fuel, no risks.|
|Vauxhall||E10 petrol is cleared for use in all Vauxhall vehicles with petrol engines, excluding:|
|Mitsubishi||E10 petrol is cleared for use in all models with petrol engines except those equipped with the GDI engine (gasoline direct injection) until 2007 models.|
E10 petrol contains up to 10% renewable ethanol, which will help to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with petrol vehicles and tackle climate change. Petrol in the UK currently contains up to 5% renewable ethanol (known as E5).
E10 petrol is already widely used around the world, including across Europe, the US and Australia. It has also been the reference fuel against which new cars are tested for emissions and performance since 2016.
