From September 2021, the standard petrol used in the UK changed from E5 (95 octane) to E10. Although the Government has said that E10 petrol is compatible with 95% of petrol-powered road vehicles, it has acknowledged that some older boats with petrol engines may not be compatible with the new fuel. As such, Premier will continue to provide the standard E5 petrol on the fuel berths across our marinas at this current time to allow our berth holders more time to prepare for the introduction of E10 petrol in the near future. The standard E5 petrol will be referred to as "super unleaded" petrol going forward and is indicated with new signage on each of the fuel berths. To read our full statement, please click here.
How To Self-Serve Fuel
To fuel up at Sovereign Harbour Marina, simply enter a payment card at the payment point, select the amount of fuel and grade that you require and wait for authorisation of the transaction, remove the nozzle from the pump and begin dispensing fuel. Payment can be made by credit or debit card. There are CCTV cameras overseeing the pumps and a help point intercom along with an emergency stop button.
Berth Holders Fuel At Cost
Berth holders will need to have a red fuel fob to claim fuel at cost price. The red fuel fob should be held just below the screen until after it has beeped. A message will then appear on the screen if the fob has been accepted the message will appear in blue, 'Identification card accepted. Your identification card has been accepted'. If the message appears in orange there is a fault and you will need to try again.
