UK rolls out labeling and campaign for E5 and B7

June 6, 2019 |

In the UK, drivers are being urged to think more carefully about the environmental impacts of their journeys through a new government campaign launching Thursday when filling stations across the UK will start rolling out new labels, which will help educate drivers on the benefits of biofuels.

Gasoline, which contains up to 5% renewable ethanol, will be labelled ‘E5’, while diesel, which contains up to 7% biodiesel, will be labelled as ‘B7’.

This is the latest step in the government’s drive to get consumers thinking more actively about the environmental impact of their transport choices, and follows a commitment to end the sale of diesel and petrol cars by 2040, set out in the Road to Zero strategy.
