Introducing E10 Petrol

How to introduce E10 petrol for vehicle use across the UK.


This consultation seeks views on proposals on how to introduce E10 petrol for vehicle use throughout in the UK.

Unleaded petrol currently contains up to 5% bioethanol, a grade known as E5, whereas E10 petrol contains up to 10% bioethanol and is not currently available. Introducing E10 petrol will reduce CO2 emissions from petrol vehicles, and could help the UK meet emissions reductions targets.

This consultation from the Department for Transport runs from 4 March to 19 April 2020.
