E10 was fully launched on September 1, and was rolled out to forecourts across England, Wales and Scotland. The new petrol is blended with up to 10 percent renewable ethanol and made up of materials such as low-grade grains, sugars and waste wood, making it greener than existing petrol.
“I mean I get it’s good for the environment and all that but, what about people that can’t afford new cars.
“They decide to charge high prices for people that can’t afford it.”
A second user claimed: “Been in touch with my local Audi dealership this morning as gov.uk says if unsure find out from them.
“Only to be told that they haven’t got a clue and to check the Government website.
“I have two classic super bikes that won’t like it but the odd tank full won’t hurt.”
The E10 rollout will support the increased production of biofuels at bioethanol plants in the northeast of England.
This will boost job opportunities in the local area, with two big plants providing around 200 skilled jobs directly.
It will also support thousands in the wider local economy including the agriculture sector that supply the feed-wheat needed to run the plant.
The petrol is set to be rolled out in Northern Ireland at the beginning of 2022, with the Republic of Ireland also looking into adopting the fuel.
Much of Europe, as well as Australia and the USA, have been using E10 for many years, with some nations using higher blend fuels like E15 and E85.
