Detail of outcome
The government has published its response to the fuel pump labelling aspects of this consultation.
A further response will be published later in 2019 concerning the E10 and consumer protection aspects of the consultation.
Unleaded petrol in the UK contains up to 5% bioethanol, a grade known as E5. E10 petrol contains up to 10% bioethanol and is not yet available in the UK.
This consultation seeks feedback on:
- proposals to ensure a continued supply of traditional E5 petrol for those motorists who will need it
- a call for evidence on whether and how best to introduce E10 petrol
- proposals to implement new fuel labelling as required by the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive
- plans to change the consumer message that must accompany the sale of E10
