Several road users have complained about losing miles per gallon since petrol stations made the switch back in September. One road user has reported losing up to 60 miles in their tank since they started using the new compound.
Meanwhile, others claim to have already switched back to the old E5 fuel and reported a “smoother ride”.
Twitter user Lozz Dee said: “Do you think driving around on E10 fuel is actually better for the planet, then think again.
“Have many of you been checking your MPG to compare before and after the change?
“Anyone else noticing up to 20 percent worse consumption?”
Twitter user nalaknip added: “I’m no conspiracy theory nutjob, but I’m definitely filling up more often with that E10 fuel.”
Express reader ‘Irgs1’ said: “I used to get 520 miles to the tank in E5.
“Now on E10 it’s 460.
“ I’ve switched back to premium E5, much smoother ride and more mpg.

Another reader added: “Although my petrol consumption is OK, my car’s performance up slight inclines at low speeds has deteriorated.
“It’s a modern car, with a turbo. In future, I’m using premium E5.
“I don’t do enough miles to worry about the cost being excessive.”
