E10 The Environmentally Friendly Future of Petrol

From Friday 10 September, only the more environmentally friendly E10 petrol will be available from the CHC fuel barge.

Details of the change from E5 to E10 are detailed below from the gov.uk website…

During summer 2021, the standard (95 octane) petrol grade in Great Britain will become E10. In Northern Ireland, this will happen in early 2022.

The change in fuel applies to petrol only. Diesel fuel will not be changing.
Almost all (95%) petrol-powered vehicles on the road today can use E10 petrol and all cars built since 2011 are compatible.

If your petrol vehicle or equipment is not compatible with E10 fuel, you will still be able to use E5 by purchasing the ‘super’ grade (97+ octane) petrol from most filling stations.
Petrol pumps will clearly label petrol as either E10 or E5.  Read more…

If you are unsure whether your engine can accept the new fuel mix, we urge you to check with the manufacturer of your engine before refuelling.
