Get Ready for E10 Fuel

Motorists have just two weeks left to check their cars are compatible with the new, forthcoming E10 petrol, which is due to be introduced as the standard from September.

The fuel is replacing E5 petrol – which contains up to five percent renewable ethanol – across the UK in a bid to reduce carbon emissions.

But whilst the majority of cars will be compatible with the new petrol, a number of vehicle models built before 2011 are not – and may be at risk of either damage or void insurance if drivers mistakenly use the E10 fuel. 

The government has set up an E10 checker on its website, where motorists can enter the model of their car to see whether or not the new fuel will work with their vehicle. If your car was made before 2011, please check it here:
