European standard designations for fuel pumps

Published on 12/10/2018

News

From mid-October, new European standard denominations will be introduced on fuel pumps. The purpose of this initiative is to harmonize the names at the fuel pumps and thus facilitate the identification of fuel when travelling abroad.
The fuels at petrol stations remain the same. This is only an additional identification.
  • In addition to the 95 petrol, there is the name E5 surrounded by a circle, which means that the petrol contains a maximum of 5% ethanol. In 2019, it will be replaced by E10, containing up to 10% ethanol.
  • In addition to the gasoline 98, there is also the name E5 surrounded by a circle, which also contains up to 5% ethanol.
  • In addition to the diesel, the name B7 is surrounded by a square. This means that Diesel contains up to 7% Biodiesel.
  • The gas is identified by the diamond-shaped symbol containing 3 letters:
    • LPG (Liquefied petroleum gas)
    • CNG (Compressed natural gas)
    • LNG (Liquefied natural gas)
