Super 95- E10
The fuel type SP95-E10, which contains up to 10% of bioethanol and 90% of unleaded 95 petrol is going to replace SP95 after 1st January 2017 in all petrol stations across Belgium.
Bioethanol is a form of renewable energy produced in Europe, mainly obtained from cereals or sugar beet and used for petrol engines. 95-E10 petrol was introduced in Belgium to work towards the objective increasing consumption of renewable energies to 10% in the transport sector by 2020.
The measure has been implemented this summer. This new fuel will reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by 60% due to its bioethanol component.
This renewable energy can be used in 60% of petrol-consuming cars produced before 2000 and should be compatible with more than 90% of the petrol consuming cars produced after 2000. For those whose car is not compatible, they would still have the option to use 98 petrol.
More information should come in the following weeks to inform future users.
