The cost benefit analysis published alongside amendments to the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) this year includes an assessment of the effects of E10 should it be deployed to meet increased targets for the supply of renewable fuel. Any future proposal to require the introduction of E10 would be subject to a full consultation with an accompanying impact assessment setting out the potential economic impacts.
Most petrol vehicles in the UK can use E10, which is the test fuel for new vehicles. By contrast there are very few vehicles in the UK compatible with significantly higher blends of ethanol in petrol, such as E80 and E85, and the wide use of such fuels is considered to be of low probability in the near future.
