New Labels – Same Fuel

New labels are starting to appear on petrol and diesel pumps and nozzles across the country as well as near the fuel filler cap on new cars.

Fuel Pumps with New EU Labelling

All pumps must have the new label on them by the beginning of September 2019.

The most important thing to understand is that the actual petrol and diesel fuel is exactly the same as before, and filling stations are likely to continue calling these fuels ‘petrol’ and ‘diesel’ alongside the new labels.

  • Petrol pumps and nozzles will be labelled E5 in a circle
  • Diesel pumps and nozzles will be labelled B7 in a square

It will make it easier for those travelling abroad. The details can be read [HERE].
