The UK Government has now finally decided to fall into line with our European counterparts and introduce E10 petrol as part of the global drive to reduce our carbon footprint. E10 petrol, as its name implies, contains 10% bioethanol derived from sugar crops and bio-waste. In theory, this makes bioethanol carbon neutral and it is said that the introduction of E10 petrol can result in a 50 kilotons reduction of carbon a year – equivalent to taking 350,000 cars off our roads. But what does it mean for classic cars? Should we worry? Will it damage our cars? Well take a look at our 2 articles on the technical tab to learn more.
