A change to UK legislation in September 2021 implemented by the Department for Transport (DoT) brought about the introduction of Ethanol blended petrol at UK filling stations. Petrol now comprises up to 10% Ethanol. Hand pumps are labelled either Petrol E10 or E5 with the declared octane level, usually 95 for Unleaded or 97 or above for Super or Premium grade unleaded ethanol blended petrol.
But did you know that MGOC Spares has been supplying E10 compliant fuel system components since well before this date? In fact, all our hoses, fuel tanks, fuel pumps and carburettor components have been E10 compliant since January 2012.
