According to a recent report published in the Daily Express, by UK insurance company 'Go Compare', the UK rollout of E10 petrol has cost drivers over £1.7billion since it was introduced in 2021 and 2022.
E10 petrol is apparently 2.3 percent less efficient than its predecessor, meaning more fuel is needed to travel the same number of miles.
Research suggested that the real-life financial implications of the standardisation of the greener fuel, and its motorists adds £300 to annual fuel bills.
The report says this can also be seen through the Government’s impact assessment of E10, which highlighted the price increase of moving from E5 to E10. E10 contains up to 10 percent renewable ethanol, five percent more than the old standard grade of E5.
