E10 triumphs in France, ethanol demand rises

10 May, 2017

ARGUS MEDIA - E10 is about to be crowned the biggest selling gasoline grade in France in early 2017, following an imminent data revision by the industry. French ethanol consumption rose in the first quarter of this year, compared with the same period in 2016, supported by rising demand for the 10pc ethanol blend SP95-E10. The E10 brand has consistently gained sales over the last five years, and Argus has been told that a data revision is likely that will place E10 as the highest selling gasoline grade in France in January and February this year.
