E10 petrol aims to reduce CO2 emissions and reduce harmful effects on the environment, you may be wondering if your Honda is compatible with E10 Bio Fuel and if you should make the switch.
Bio Fuel is a type of petrol that contains up to 10% ethanol, which is a renewable fuel extracted from crops like grain, sugar beet or straw. This fuel specification is kinder to the environment and meets the same quality standards as regular unleaded petrol.
As transport is currently responsible for approximately 24% of CO2 emissions in the UK, the introduction of Bio Fuel aims to provide significant reductions in the amount of CO2 emissions from vehicles. 84% of UK vehicles are said to be compatible with E10 petrol, making the switch easy.
Not sure whether your Honda is compatible with E10 Bio Fuel?
It’s simple, if your car is post 1996 and equipped with electronic fuel injection (Honda PGM-FI), you can use E10 petrol. All post 1996 Honda models are equipped with Honda PGM-FI.
Some petrol engines, especially older ones, could face issues when using E10 petrol, such as the fuel system or the engine itself. So, if your Honda is aged pre 1996, or you are unsure of the year your car was made and whether it may be compatible with E10 petrol, please visit the Government’s E10 petrol compatibility checker to find out if your vehicle is affected.
