e10 petrol for 2021
There is currently a consultation by the Department of Transport regarding the introduction of E10 petrol for UK Vehicles.
Unleaded petrol currently contains up to 5% bioethanol, the proposal is to raise this to 10%.
This is being done to reduce CO2 emissions
Not all vehicles can run on this higher level of bioethanol due to it's agressive nature on seals on older engines.

Bennetts Insurance has a good article together with a list of bikes that can use E10 petrol click here

MCIA launches 'Unlock your freedom' campaign
The Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA), a BMF Corporate Member, has launched a new campaign to protect and champion motorcycles amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Launched in collaboration with manufacturers, motorcycle publications and industry specialists, the 'Unlock your freedom' campaign is a brand new initiative to help highlight the reasons why riding a scooter or motorcycle is a great way to stay isolated and safe.
It also contains essential information about the licencing process and shares the easiest way to get on two wheels, as well as providing an easy to search map allowing users to find their closest Training Centre.
The industry has also come together and is calling for all motorcyclists to encourage their friends and family members to think about getting on two wheels in order to stay safe and isolated too.
Commenting, MCIA CEO Tony Campbell, said: “Powered Two Wheelers are the perfect solution to the current government advice of avoiding public transport. We are looking to every biker, industry connection and two-wheeled advocate to get behind the campaign to open up powered two wheelers to the masses and highlight the very real benefits of travelling on two wheels.”
For more information on #UnlockYourFreedom and how you can encourage others to get on two wheels, visit www.unlockyourfreedom.co.uk.
