A new eco-friendly petrol E10 now at stations across Britain

A new eco-friendly petrol has been rolled out to filling stations across Britain. The greener E10 fuel contains less carbon than other fuels and more ethanol and is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Current petrol grades in the UK known as E5, contain up to 5% ethanol while the new E10 formulation sees that rise to 10%. But the RAC warns the new fuel may not be compatible with 600,000 older cars. Owners of older vehicles can continue to purchase E5 but it will be more expensive. Older cars can still be filled with E10 but it could cause damage to engines. The change is part of government plans to reach net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
