"“The next 15 years will be absolutely crucial for slashing emissions from our roads, as we all start to feel the benefits of the transition to a zero-emission future. Before electric cars become the norm, we want to take advantage of reduced CO2 emissions today.

With E10 becoming the new standard petrol grade in Great Britain, meaning it will be available at almost all petrol stations across England, Scotland and Wales. The change is expected to be introduced to Northern Island in early 2022, subject to approval.
With most petrol stations stocking the newer E10 fuel, those petrol stations that offer 2 grades of fuel will offer the alternative higher octane (97+) ‘super’ grade E5 fuel. It is important to note that some rural petrol stations will stock either E10 or E5, so it is advised to check ahead of your journey.
Just be sure to note, each fuel will be clearly labelled with either E10 or E5, so make sure you’re using the right pump!
