From 1st September 2021 the standard petrol grade in the UK will become E10. The introduction of E10 petrol will help reduce CO2 emissions associated with petrol vehicles.
All petrol cars manufactured after 2011 can use E10, but the compatibility of older vehicles should be checked online.
Most motorcycles are also approved to use E10 petrol, but you should check compatibility just in case.
For the few vehicles that need it, E5 will continue to be available in the 'Endurance' grade.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is E10 petrol?
E10 petrol contains up to 10% renewable ethanol. To date, petrol in the UK has contained up to 5% renewable ethanol (known as E5). All petrol retailers will be moving from E5 to E10 petrol in line with government mandate.
For more information please see here.
Which vehicles are compatible?
Almost all petrol-powered vehicles on the road are compatible with E10 petrol. At present, around 95% are approved for use with E10. You can check if your car, motorbike or moped can use E10 petrol by using the government E10 compatibility checker:
What are my options if my vehicle is not compatible with E10 petrol?
You can use the Endurance Premium Petrol E5, which contains a maximum of 5% ethanol. This is available on pumps 3 & 4.
