​What is E10 petrol?

E10 petrol contains up to 10% renewable ethanol, which will help to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with petrol vehicles and tackle climate change. Petrol in the UK currently contains up to 5% renewable ethanol (known as E5).

This only applies to petrol vehicles.

​Is E10 petrol compatible with my Mazda?

E10 Petrol is cleared for use in all Mazda vehicles fitted with petrol engines, as specified below:

  • All Mazda6 models from 2002 (GG/GY model) onwards
  • All Mazda2 models from 2003 (DY model) onwards
  • All Mazda3 models from 2003 (BK model) onwards

The other earlier models require petrol which contains ethanol 5% or less.

What should I do if my Mazda is not listed above?

If your Mazda is not compatible with E10 petrol, you should continue to use E5 petrol by purchasing the Super unleaded (97+ octane) petrol from most filling stations. This can be identified by the E5 marking on the relevant petrol pump and will contain 5% ethanol or less.
