Customers with vehicles built prior to January 2000 are urged to continue to use E5 unleaded petrol in line with Government guidance. However, for OPEL owners with vehicles built within the last 21 years, the change in standard petrol from E5 to E10 will have no impact on the way that they fill their vehicles at the pumps.
