Germany allows gas stations to drop gasoline

In Germany, the so-called Federal Council has paved the way for two new diesels. It could push high-quality gasoline with just 5 percent bioethanol off the market.

In Germany, both HVO and GTL diesel are now on the market. The fuels are not made from crude oil and are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly than conventional diesel.

But this may mean that the Germans have to say goodbye to petrol with the E5 label. In Denmark, this kind of thing is associated with petrol of the highest possible quality.

In Germany, the petrol type is called super petrol, but to make room for the new diesel variants, the country's petrol stations are now allowed to remove the E5 petrol.

E5 basically just means that petrol consists of five percent bioethanol. The higher E10 mixture has been a legal requirement from the EU since 2018. But the high-performance E5 petrol is still allowed.

Most cars can run on E10 petrol without any problems. But there are certain cases – also on two wheels in the case of motorcycles – where the E10 petrol is not an option.

Still, according to Autobild, this will mean that more and more filling stations in Germany will phase out the E5 petrol. However, there will still be an alternative to the E10 petrol, namely the even more expensive octane 98 – what the Germans call Super Plus.

Motorists who are in doubt as to whether their car can run on E10 petrol can usually find the answer in the service book.

In general, however, all petrol cars built after 1 January 2011 are ready to use E10 petrol without problems. If you as a car owner are still in doubt, Drivkraft Danmark has prepared a list of E10-compatible cars.
