Super unleaded

I might be a bit late to the party here but did you all know that Esso Super unleaded contains no ethanol?

I go miles across town for this delicious petrol.

The only exception is down in Cornwall apparently where it DOES have 5% ethanol in. Everywhere else it's not 🤔

From the Esso Fuels website;

Although our pumps have E5 labels on them, our Synergy Supreme+ 99 is actually ethanol free (except, due to technical supply reasons, in Devon, Cornwall, North Wales, North England and Scotland). Legislation requires us to place these E5 labels on pumps that dispense unleaded petrol with ‘up to 5% ethanol’, including those that contain no ethanol, which is why we display them on our Synergy Supreme+ 99 pumps.

There’s currently no requirement for renewable fuel, like ethanol, to be present in super unleaded petrol although this could change in the future, in which case we would comply with any new legislation.
