How ethanol fuel laws will impact on motorists

THE RACQ has reassured Queensland motorists they should not be worse off under the ethanol mandate which takes effect from Sunday.

From that day, all large fuel retailers will be required by law to ensure 3% of their regular petrol sales each quarter aere bio-fuel based.

RACQ's Lauren Ritchie said the mandate should still allow motorists choice between fuels and offer competition across the state.

"Motorists will still be able to choose between unleaded, E10, premium, LPG and diesel at most service stations, despite the mandate on retailers," Ms Ritchie said.

"There's been some concern retailers will opt to remove unleaded petrol altogether to reach the E10 sales quota, as was the case in NSW, but we are assured the lower mandate in Queensland will prevent this from occurring.

"We encourage motorists to try E10 to see if it impacts on fuel usage or performance of their vehicles."
