Peugeot Confirms Full Compatibility of Petrol and PHEV Vehicles with E10 Petrol
Peugeot confirms that all petrol and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) vehicles built from January 2000 onwards are fully compatible with E10 petrol. This applies to both passenger cars and vans.
The Irish government has recently stated the introduction of E10 petrol on Irish forecourts by the start of April as part of its Climate Action Plan 2023, which aims to achieve a 51% reduction in transport emissions by 2030.
Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan said:
“While there has been a big uptake in electric vehicles, we need to continue with measures that can have an immediate impact on emissions from vehicles that are already on Irish roads. Measures such as moving to E10 petrol mean that we can reduce our emissions from transport further, move us closer to reaching our climate targets. It also means that we are in step with Northern Ireland, the UK and many other European countries who have already moved in this direction.”
Peugeot's full range of 100%-electric vehicles, including the e-208, e-2008, New e-Traveller, and e-Expert van, are not affected by this change. Peugeot's BlueHDi diesel models are also not affected. Customers with vehicles built prior to January 2000 are urged to continue using E5 Super Unleaded petrol in line with Irish Government guidance.
For Peugeot owners with vehicles built within the last 21 years, the change in standard petrol from E5 to E10 will have no impact on the way they fill their vehicles at the pumps.
Peugeot is committed to providing its customers with a hassle-free driving experience while contributing to a more sustainable future.
