Starting in September, thousands of drivers will not be able to use the new E10 fuel to replace ordinary gasoline.
The government has confirmed that E10 will replace E5 gasoline used throughout the UK-but some old cars are not compatible with the new fuel.
This New fuel From September this year, it will become the national standard gasoline.
Unleaded gasoline currently contains up to 5% bioethanol and is called E5.
But E10 gasoline contains up to 10% bioethanol, which is more environmentally friendly.
The government stated that the introduction of E10 gasoline will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from gasoline vehicles and will help the UK achieve its emission reduction targets.
Its introduction can reduce 750,000 tons of transportation carbon dioxide emissions each year.
It has been used all over the world, including Europe, the United States and Australia.
Since 2016, it has been the reference fuel for new cars to test their emission and performance levels.
How to determine if your car is compatible
The government stated that 95% of gasoline-powered cars on the road today will be able to run on E10.
This includes all vehicles manufactured after 2011, which will be able to use E10 fuel without any problems.
Most cars and motorcycles produced since the late 1990s have also been approved by manufacturers to use E10.
However, classic cars may not be compatible with new fuels.
Certain models, especially those from the early 2000s, and some mopeds with an engine size of 50cc or less, may not be able to use the E10.
The government provided a Online tools Check if your car is compatible with E10.
You need to provide information about the car manufacturer, and then you will see a list of which models are compatible or incompatible.
Diesel vehicles are not affected by this change.
What to do if your car is not compatible
If your car is not compatible with E10 gasoline, you can still refuel.
E5 will be available at gas stations that provide at least two grades of gasoline-just make sure to check carefully before refueling.
The Transport Department said it will be available in “most” British front yards.
But it will be “super” grade fuel-which means it may be more expensive than E10.
The government said: “This ensures the widespread introduction of E10 as a standard gasoline grade and the provision of low ethanol E5 fuel within the UK, which will still be required for certain vehicles and equipment.”
The different gasoline grades will be clearly marked on the fuel pump.
If you accidentally fill an incompatible car with E10, don’t panic.
Using a box of E10 fuel in an incompatible vehicle should not be a major one-time problem—you only need to fill up E5 next time.
However, repeated use of E10 gasoline in an incompatible vehicle may damage your car engine.
