One in five Queensland passenger vehicles using E10

May 16, 2018 |

In Australia, one in five Queensland passenger vehicles is now using petrol with 10 per cent ethanol – a carbon reduction comparable to taking approximately 13,000 cars off the road.

Energy Minister Dr Anthony Lynham told Parliament that 2.5 per cent of the regular petrol sold in Queensland in the last quarter of 2017 was ethanol, up from just 1.5 per cent when the Palaszczuk Government’s biofuels mandate commenced. Dr Lynham said the mandate had also achieved another milestone in the December quarter, with the first biodiesel entering the market, with volumes expected to increase in coming months.
