With the government announcement of the introduction of E10 in 2021, some owners of older Porsche models may be concerned about how they will keep motoring.
Esso will continue to provide a protection-grade fuel, Esso Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded petrol, for older vehicles that were not designed to run on E10, which contains 10% ethanol. Approximately 80% of the Esso Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded petrol sold at Esso-branded service stations in the UK is manufactured at Esso’s own British refinery and is ethanol free.
The extensive network of Esso-owned terminals at Avonmouth, Birmingham, Hythe, Purfleet and west London supplies customers from the South Coast to the Midlands. Unfortunately, Esso cannot supply ethanol-free fuels in the extreme south west of England, the north west of England, in Teesside and in Scotland, where Esso Synergy Supreme+ unleaded petrol will contain a maximum of five per cent ethanol.
Customers can check with staff at Esso-branded service stations before filling up if they are unsure whether or not the fuel contains ethanol.
As well as having a higher octane – which helps to reduce knocking-related performance losses in modern cars – Esso Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded petrol has extra additives that can benefit all petrol cars, even older ones, making it Esso’s best ever protection for your engine.
Esso Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded petrol has double the amount of detergent additive compared with Synergy Unleaded petrol, which helps give your engine a deeper clean. The cleaner your engine, the better it can perform and the more fuel-efficient it is.
Esso Synergy Supreme+ Unleaded petrol also contains molecules that help to reduce friction and prevent wear and tear in your engine.*
