PRA chairman Brian Madderson believes the government is taking a more "realistic" and "pragmatic" approach to the introduction of E10 fuel, following a meeting with officials at the Department for Transport (DfT).

The government has had a long-term plan to introduce E10 fuel to meet emissions targets, but the PRA has been warning that neither consumers nor the industry were ready for it, and smaller filling stations would be put at a financial disadvantage that could push many of them out of business.

Madderson said: "It seems that officials and the Government have heeded our warning that before they commence any proposal for the introduction of E10, the commercial implications must be fully explored and solutions agreed both by industry and government. In particular, I found the DfT were commercial and pragmatic."
