Standard Petrol is changing to E10 – Know Your Fuel
This summer, the standard petrol grade in the UK will become E10. The introduction of E10 petrol will help reduce CO2 emissions associated with petrol vehicles. MCIA have been working closely with the Department for Transport (DfT) to ensure Powered Two Wheelers (PTW) have been considered in the strategy, planning and communications from the outset.
DfT have created the E10 Fuel Checker which enables riders to search for their PTW and check compatibility, prior to arrival at the pumps. Some PTWs made prior to 2011 will need to continue to use E5 petrol, which will remain available as the super grade petrol option at the pumps. Riders are advised to use the super grade E5 option if there is any doubt in compatibility.
You can find branded ‘Know Your Fuel’ assets here, which are available to use across your platforms to inform your customers of the change.
