UK’s REA says E10 compatible on far more vehicles than thought

August 29, 2018 |

In the UK, new analysis from the Renewable Energy Association, the trade association which represents the renewable fuels industry, indicates that there are significantly fewer main household cars on the road that are unwarrantied to use E10 than the Department for Transport (DfT) presently estimates. The REA’s analysis indicates that, excluding older classic or hobby vehicles, there are around 250,000 main household vehicles in the UK that are unwarrantied for using E10. This is almost half the number suggested by the DfT and lower than the number estimated by the RAC Foundation. This is anticipated to reduce to around 125,000 vehicles by 2020 (or less than 1% of the vehicle fleet) when assuming RAC Foundation vehicle scrappage rates. REA analysis also suggests that these cars tend to be owned in wealthier areas of the country, potentially as secondary or additional family member vehicles.
