Many drivers are currently at a loss at the gas station and do not know whether their vehicle will tolerate the new gasoline. The result: you fill up with the "old" but more expensive, but more expensive super fuel with only 5 percent ethanol content. But what actually is E10, who is allowed to refuel it and who not? A brief overview.

The "Super E10 said fuel contains up to ten percent ethanol in addition to traditional gasoline. The additive is a biofuel obtained from plants or other biodegradable wastes. Herein lies Vor-. Disadvantage at the same time. On the one hand, the environmental impact of CO2 emissions from cars is reduced, since a larger proportion of renewable raw materials is burned. The CO2 balance is therefore much better, especially since there is less dependence on pure, but only limited, crude oil. On the other hand, fields and arable land otherwise used for food are now being used for the production of bioethanol, causing food prices to rise due to shortages and exacerbating the hunger problem in developing countries.

To ensure that people buy the new fuel, which is less efficient than conventional super, it is subsidized by taxes. Thus it is offered at the gas stations more favorably than the conventional super gasoline. However, not every vehicle with a gasoline engine can run on E10 fuel. According to estimates, about ten percent of all passenger cars registered in Germany may not be fueled with the biofuel. "Filling up with E10 fuels even once can cause a wide range of damage throughout the fuel system", warns Greg Boss, Manager Technique/Warranty at the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan. He therefore recommends that, if possible, incorrectly refueled vehicles should no longer be started from the time of refueling, that the tank should be emptied completely and cleaned meticulously. "In the case of vehicles that have already been started, the entire fuel system must also be cleaned and, if necessary, even replaced. It is not possible to avoid or reduce damage by refueling with non-E10 fuel or adding special additives", so Boss. If the manual recommends Superplus (octane number above RON 95), you should generally keep your hands off E10.

However, a large proportion of all cars with gasoline engines are suitable for E10 refueling. Especially with more recent models, there are usually no problems. Nissan gives for most vehicles a release starting from the year of construction 2000, whereby naturally all later introduced models like among other things Pixo, Cube, Qashqai and Micra are E10-suited. With Ford all current models with exception of the middle class Mondeo from the year of manufacture 2004 to 2006 with 96 kW/130 HP strong gasoline direct injection tolerate the new fuel. Subaru even gives a general release for vehicles built in 1991 or later. On the website www.Dat.De finds a cross-manufacturer list of the E10 compatibility of cars and motorcycles registered in Germany, provided by Deutsche Automobil Treuhand. The ADAC also offers a special service at www.Adac.De/e10 provides a corresponding overview.
