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.


It is expected to cut transport CO2 emissions by 750,000 tonnes per year.

This is the equivalent of taking 350,000 cars off the road, or all cars in North Yorkshire.

But some have complained of issues with the new petrol, saying that it has not worked as they expected.

One E10 user said: “Had our first bad experience with new E10 fuel yesterday.

“A friend filled up his camper van & conked out stranded within a few miles.

“Watch out and if in doubt afraid you need to go for wallet busting Super Unleaded.” (sic)

The tweet garnered hundreds of interactions, with many still uncertain about the new petrol.

A user responded to their issue saying: “It’s annoying!

“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.
