DRIVERS are reporting spending more money on petrol since the introduction of E10 fuel earlier last month.

Some social media users have claimed they have needed to “refill twice as quick” under the new compound as drivers feel the sting. Drivers have claimed their cars were “drinking” the new petrol and were baffled as to why their car was suddenly using up more fuel.

One Twitter user said: “This E10 fuel is meant to be better yet I’ve had to refill twice as quick??

“And I mean my mileage left was flyyyying down.”

Twitter user Jemma Fabuleux added: “Is anyone else’s car drinking the new #E10 #Fuel?

“I’m having to fill up twice as much as before and wondering if it’s not as good.”
