Germany: Fuelling up or putting more on your plate?

12 April 2022

Sales of E10 (petrol with 10 % bioethanol) rose to 20 % of petrol sales in Germany in January 2022. Nevertheless, not everyone is talking about it with euphoria.

Although almost all petrol cars are now suitable for E10, especially newer vehicles from November 2010 onwards, the conflict of interest between the plate and the tank is also coming into focus in Germany.


In Switzerland, the principle of "plate - trough - tank" has applied for years. Anything that can still be used as animal feed must not end up in the tank.
