New E10 fuel is your car compatible?
Some of the UK's favourite classic cars might not be suitable for this new fuel type
A few weeks ago the government announced plans to roll out a new version of Unleaded fuel E10.
This follows countries like Germany, Finland and France, who already use it.
It’s been dubbed a ‘cleaner alternative to unleaded or diesel’, however a recent study has shown many cars currently on the UK’s roads won’t be able to use this new fuel type.
So what’s the fuss about?
Well the E10 fuel type is made from 10% Ethanol, whereas current unleaded is 5%, which makes it friendlier to the environment.
Sounds good so what’s the catch?
Well apart from the fact your older car might not be able to use the new fuel, some studies have shown an increase in consumption. This increase would impact the environmental impact of the new fuel.
We wait to see how this develops and what alternatives will be available to keep some of our nation’s classics on the road!
