My Car Check Launches New E10 Compatibility Checker
An estimated 600,000 cars in the UK will be affected by E10 fuel. My Car Check has released an easy online tool for drivers to check if their vehicle is compatible. MCC also predicts E10 could lead to some used cars losing their value.

Coming to filling stations across the UK from September 2021, this greener fuel type expends less CO2 and could reduce emissions by up to 750,000 tonnes per year.
MCC supports introducing this new greener fuel, but we also recognise that this will cost some drivers, with an estimated 600,000 cars in the UK will not be compatible.
As part of MCC's commitment to the resale and used car markets, we have created a new tool that will allow both buyers and sellers to tell if a car can run on E10 fuel.
MCC also predicts that the new fuel will result in some distribution for used car market sellers.
"Nearly all petrol cars manufactured after 2000 will have no issues using E10 fuel, so there will be little to no impact on valuations for these vehicles. However, we'll likely see some older, incompatible vehicles will become less desirable in the used market and values on these vehicles could soften after the introduction of E10 fuel," explains Stuart Wilson, Vehicle Valuation Manager.
"We expect to see changes to the total cost of ownership model as the true efficiency of E10 fuel and the mpg impact of the switch is yet to be fully understood. "
"Don't be surprised to see future government incentives in the form of a scrappage style scheme to encourage the removal of non-E10 compliant vehicles from the UK roads."
