Jack, the channel’s founder, has warned the new petrol may cause an “increase in fuel consumption”. This was because ethanol is “less energy-dense” meaning drivers will have to “use more” to cover a similar distance.

Ultimately, this means drivers will have to top up more at petrol stations to cover the extra petrol they are using.

He said: “I need to talk to you about something that’s pretty shocking I’ve just found out about E10 fuel.

“And it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact it might damage old classics.

“No, there is a far worse problem with using E10.

“It affects every single car on the road which uses petrol whether it is one of the oldest or the very newest car that’s out.”

He added: “E10 actually causes an increase in fuel consumption for any car that’s using it. Ethanol is actually less energy-dense than Unleaded fuel.

“So that means that because it has this lower energy density you have to use more and therefore your fuel consumption in your car will go up.

“You’re not going to lose any power because your car’s computer will alter the air-fuel balance to make up for that loss of energy density.

“But your fuel consumption will go up. I really couldn’t believe it.”

The Department for Transport’s Introducing E10 petrol study confirmed drivers would experience lower fuel economy under the new E10 grade.

They confirmed fuel economy may drop by up to two percent using the new compound.

But they said this was ultimately down to the “driving style” of motorists.
