With E10 now on the Prime Minister’s radar, we’re pleased it’s finally getting the attention it deserves.

While there is no data or evidence from countries which have already introduced this fuel that older cars aren’t compatible with E10, we hope the APPG Inquiry will explore this issue further so that E10 can be very quickly introduced in the UK.

The APPG for British Bioethanol has today launched an Inquiry into Introducing E10 in the UK. E10 is a blend of fuel containing ten percent bioethanol already sold in many other developed countries including Germany, Belgium, France, Finland and the US.

This Inquiry follows announcements last year from two of the UK’s largest bioethanol producers Vivergo and Ensus - to cease and pause production due to insufficient demand in the UK where only E5 - a blend of fuel containing five percent bioethanol - is available....

  • Of the 82 LAs with the worst air quality, not a single council has bought, rented or placed an order for an electric vehicle in the last year

Nic Dakin MP, Chair of the APPG for British Bioethanol commented:

“As usual the Government is failing to take the initiative and lead the way on tackling climate change and air pollution, choosing instead to delay vital decisions and thereby putting thousands of jobs in my region at risk.

- Over 95% of the petrol cars currently on the UK road were manufactured since 2000 and therefore likely to be already warrantied for E10 use – this should give the Department for Transport confidence to introduce E10 knowing that any impact will be minimal and that there are suitable alternatives in place - Around 2.7 million petrol vehicles (13%) are optimised for E10 use, and are therefore getting poorer performance by being forced to use E5 in the UK. This is more than double the number of unwarrantied vehicl...
