E10

List of ACEM member company petrol vehicles compatible with E10 petrol


(i.e. EN 228 with the current volatility limits specified in EN228: 2008)

Important note applicable for the complete list hereunder:

The European Fuel Quality Directive[1] introduces a new market petrol across the European Union from 1st January 2011 that may contain up to 10% (by volume) ethanol (E10).
For vehicles equipped with a spark-ignition (petrol) engine introduced into the EU market, this list indicates their compatibility with E10 petrol which complies also with the EN 228: 2008[2] volatility limits.

Other information:
The European Fuel Quality Directive requires that member states of the European Union must ensure that sufficient volumes of today’s petrol are available for vehicles that are not compatible withthe use of E10 petrol. Owners of the vehicles indicated in this list that are not cleared for the use of E10 should therefore continue to have EU-wide access to today’s petrol (EN228: 2008 ) that may contain up to 5% (by volume) ethanol.
In addition, it is a general recommendation that fuels containing metallic additives should not be used.
