The Finnish Information Centre of Automobile Sector (AuT): The 95 E10 gasoline is suitable for all new car models available in Finland since 2012

The 95 E10 gasoline is suitable for all new car models available in Finland since 2012, providing that the vehicle does not exceed octane 95. The octane data is marked in the car manual and at hand by the dealer representing the make.

On 1 January 2011, the ethanol concentration of 95 octane petrol was raised in Finland in order to ensure that the legislative transport biofuel obligation will be met. The increase in petrol ethanol concentration is one of many measures aimed at achieving the environmental targets set for the transport sector.

Finland’s goal in the country’s long-term climate and energy strategy is to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions from road transport by 15 percent from their 2005 level by the year 2020.
