"The government wants to make sure that buying a green car and filling up with green fuel pays off," says Energy Minister Anna Karin Hatt.
The plan is to force producers to mix in an annual average of seven per cent ethanol in the petrol. Not all cars can run on fuel with such a proportion of ethanol, so the current five per cent fuel will remain. But the new E10 should be available on all bigger petrol stations by May 2015. According to the government, all new cars should be ok with this fuel, Swedish Radio News reports.
