A new type of petrol is due for release in September of this year, by the name of e10.

Referring to the amount of ethanol being used in the petrol (10% in this case), you may have noticed that current petrol has been marked as E5.  This has been done to improve CO2 emissions but will have a negative effect on older petrol cars such as degrading rubber hosing and fuel lines.

It’s estimated that more than 500,000 older petrol cars will have issues with this new petrol so it’s best to check on the DfT website to check. Have a look at the link below:
