David Bilsborough, Business Owner at Cheshire Cars said the new E10 petrol changes were not “all what we had hoped for”. Mr Bilsborough said he had experimented with his own car comparing the difference between E5 and E10 fuel.
However, he found his vehicle liked E5 fuel and was running better with it compared to the new compound.
He said running a car on E5 should lead to a “better fuel burn” which should lead to better efficiency.
He said: “We’ve been carrying out an experiment with our own car.
“We have been using both E10 and using the E5.”
He added: “We are finding in our car, the vehicle likes and prefers the E5 fuel, so the super Unleaded.
“It allows the car to run hotter which therefore means you get a better fuel burn.
“So you should get a few more miles per gallon.
“It is certainly the case in some cars.”
