To achieve our zero emissions future, we're thinking about far more than just new vehicles. Over the next decade, some of our biggest immediate opportunities will come from reducing the overall CO2 emissions of the existing 21m+ petrol vehicles on our roads.
That's why Zemo has long championed the introduction of E10 petrol - a more environmentally-friendly blend with up to 10% renewable ethanol (versus up to 5% today), which becomes the standard grade of petrol from 1 September 2021.
Every new petrol car and van built since 2011 was designed to use E10 petrol, and over 95% of all the petrol vehicles on our roads today are compatible. However, a small number of older or classic cars and motorbikes may not be approved for E10 petrol and should continue to use E5.
To help these drivers, we've worked with our members to develop a quick and easy number plate driven Zemo E10 Compatibility Checker.
