Can your car use E10?


Do you have a question about whether your vehicle can run on E10, the widely used petrol-ethanol blend? A new online tool offers motorists instant answers on E10 compatibility for most makes of cars and motorcycles.

As the EU looks for more ways to reduce emissions from transport and boost renewable energy use, many countries are turning to E10 fuel as an immediate, cost-effective and socially inclusive solution that works in today’s cars and infrastructure.

E10 contains up to 10% ethanol – a renewable fuel produced from sustainably grown crops, wastes and residues that significantly reduces transport greenhouse gas emissions. It is sold in many countries around the world and is compatible with nearly all petrol cars on the road today in Europe.

E10 has been progressively rolled out across Europe since 2009 and is currently available in 15 EU countries and the U.K.: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia and Sweden.
