As the government in Australia’s Queensland urges motorists to use ethanol-added fuel in their cars, Queensland’s automobile association RACQ has backed the move, but wants motorists to have a choice. A RACQ official said people need to change their view of biofuels. He said it was true that 10 years ago, when the fuel was introduced in Queensland, many cars couldn’t handle it. But it was a completely different story now.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Government recently launched the E10 OK website, encouraging motorists to increase their use of biofuels to help both the environment and the economy.
  • Ethanol blended E10 fuel is made from grain as well as molasses and sugarcane which is then mixed with unleaded petrol.
  • From January 2017, E10 fuel will have to make up at least 30 per cent of petrol available for sale at petrol stations across the state.
