Standard Petrol is Changing to E10

During summer 2021, the standard (95 octane) petrol grade in Great Britain will become E10.

E10 Petrol Explained

From Summer 2021 the standard petrol grade will be changing to E10. This change only applies to petrol only as Diesel fuel will not be changing.

All cars built from 2011 are compatible with the change and 95% of all other petrol-powered cars are also able to use E10.

If your petrol vehicle or equipment is not compatible with E10 fuel, you will still be able to use E5 by purchasing the ‘super’ grade (97+ octane) petrol from most filling stations.

Petrol pumps will clearly label petrol as either E10 or E5.
