Finnish study finds little E10-E5 petrol mileage difference

Finnish study finds little E10-E5 petrol mileage difference | Finland | Scoop.it
Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT), a government-funded body, said in a statement Monday that laboratory tests carried out with six cars of various makes indicated that the mileage difference between 95E10 and 98E5 grades of petrol was one per cent in favour of the latter.

Juhani Laurikko, a VTT researcher, said motorists had no reason to avoid filling up with 95E10.

The Finnish Petroleum Federation said sales of 95E10, a fuel that contains 10 per cent of ethanol, had risen in May to equal 98E5 sales.

"Factual information is beginning to do the trick," said Helena Vänskä, the managing director of the lobby.

"I hope that motorists will notice that mistrust toward E10 petrol is unfounded."
