NFU Scotland supports E10 but warns about potential challenges

May 13, 2020 |

In the UK, NFU Scotland has welcomed the opportunities that switching to E10 petrol on forecourts could bring but consumers must be protected to ensure problems like those encountered in agricultural vehicles last winter are to be avoided.
The Union was responding to a Department for Transport (DfT) consultation on the introduction of E10 petrol as the standard petrol grade across the UK by 2021. Today, the standard petrol grade in the UK contains up to 5 per cent ethanol, known as E5, and the proposed switch would see E10 fuel, which has up to 10 per cent ethanol and up to 90% regular unleaded petrol, become the standard grade.  It is estimated that the greener fuel could significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
