They’re increasing ethanol in petrol (gas) so we won’t be able to drive old cars or use chainsaws

Sharing is Caring!

The plant-based ethanol content of all petrol sold in Ireland is to be doubled from 5% to 10% from the start of April after the required legislation was passed by the Dáil yesterday.

The target of doubling the blend proportion of ethanol in petrol is included in the Climate Action Plan as part of the measures to achieve a 51% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.

This is likely to pose problems for some older models of cars, classic vehicles, some smaller mopeds with an engine size of 50CC or under, as well as certain gardening, marine, or aviation equipment engines and generators.

They did this in the UK last year. How will I use my chainsaw? And I’ve got a 2005 car. Hope I can still use it.
