Changing to E10 Petrol
From September 2021, the standard petrol used in the UK changed from E5 (95 octane) to E10 and we are now accepting E10 deliveries to all of the petrol fuel bays across our marinas. The new E10 petrol will be referred to as ‘Unleaded’ petrol and is indicated with new signage on each of the fuel berths. If you have any concerns please consult your engine manufacturer to assess any implications for your particular engine. To read our full statement, please click here.
