One reader said they would “pick E5 every time” as it was “better for combustion and efficiency”. Readers were reacting to motoring YouTube channel ‘Number 27’ who warned E10 could come with fuel efficiency issues.
They suggested fuel economy issues may affect “every car” on the road which uses petrol”.
TruthSpeak63 said: “Another disaster, did the fuel companies not know E10 was not a good fuel and lower mileage.
“I bet they did and thought bigger profits.”
Another reader added: “Why is anyone surprised?
“From a mechanics point of view if I was given a choice of E5 or E10 and asked which will be better for combustion and engine efficiency I would pick the E5 every time.
“Cheaper E10 will be useless and I will not be using it.”
Flivoless said: “There would appear to be two winners with this E10 fuel, the petrol companies as they will sell more fuel and the Government by way of tax on the additional fuel.
“I can’t see any real benefit whatsoever to the climate for the same reasons.”

Reader Backfire added: “This is what happens when politicians, not engineers, get involved with this stuff.
“All these ‘green’ panic moves will cost the country, and therefore us, a fortune.”
Other road users likened the latest E10 update to Labour’s ‘dash for diesel’ in 2001.
Motorists were given financial incentives for cars that emitted fewer CO2 emissions.
