Petrol change

Recommended Posts

Please be kind to me, how do I find out whether the change in Petrol has implications for me.  I keep hearing alarm bells from people regarding the new fuel and have no idea whether the people posting them are just scaremongering.  I read this morning that "this new fuel is going to affect rubber gaskets and pipes and some metals too"

Surely that isn't true???

There is no need to panic. If your car is pre 2005 just switch to premium petrol which will still be E5.

You missed a bit off the end of your post a premium price 😀

Strangely ( maybe unsurprisingly) the fuel price comparison sites don’t seem to include super unleaded prices (E5) but pretty sure it was £1.49 a litre the other day at Esso so there’s the “premium” content.

Looking at the picture below with average prices and mileage it’s costing around £275.00 a year more for the E5 SUP, roughly the same amount as doubling my road tax/ VED.

No mention of lawn mowers, I wonder if my 30 year old Honda will need SUP 😀

Thanks for all the replies.  My Lexus CT is 2015, but I didn't find that model on the Government website.  However it does look as though everything will be ok for me and others in a similar situation.

Very best wishes
