E10 petrol

What is E10 petrol?

E10 petrol is so named as it contains up to 10% renewable ethanol, which will help to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) and Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions associated with petrol vehicles. Petrol in the UK currently contains up to 5% renewable ethanol (known as E5) but from September 1st, 2021, E10 will be standard in all filling stations across the UK to help tackle climate change. 

Does this affect me?
Yes. E10 will increase everyone’s fuel consumption as ethanol contains less energy than petrol. E10 will also likely impact many older (pre-2010) petrol and all classic cars with estimates of over 600,000 cars being affected in the UK alone including VW Golfs, MGs, Mazdas, Nissans, Fords and Rovers.

Further information regarding E10 petrol can be found on the RAC website:

RAC - E10

What problems does E10 cause and why?
The main problem with E10 is that the additional ethanol content encourages separate layers of water and fuel to form in the tank. This was less of a problem with the old E5 standard.

All fuels at the pump contain small doses of water. However, extra water is gained over time in fuel tanks purely from condensation, which is unavoidable. This extra water typically gathers and sits in a separate layer at the bottom of the fuel tank where the fuel line draws from.

Ethanol prefers to mix with water as opposed to petrol and where there is sufficient of both, the ethanol will leave the petrol and preferentially combine with the water and form an even larger separate layer at the bottom of the tank. The fuel line then draws from this watery alcohol mixture and is pumped directly into the engine causing damage and breakdowns. This is often the cause of cars going into "limp home mode" over the winter. E10 is just going to exacerbate this issue because more ethanol encourages separation

The Solution: ElimiNOX Eco™ Petrol Conditioner
The problems with E10 arise from water and ethanol separating out from the petrol. ElimiNOX Eco™ Petrol Conditioner removes  these problems by making sure the petrol, water and ethanol all mix better to prevent separation. 

ElimiNOX Eco™ Petrol Conditioner lifts the water from the bottom of the tank and re-disperses it throughout the fuel. Properly dispersed water means that the ethanol cannot combine in a single phase with it and separate out. Preventing this separate watery alcohol phase from forming is the key to removing the problems with E10.

Your car is therefore protected from the inconvenience and costs of a breakdown and subsequent maintenance & recovery. Using ElimiNOX Eco™ Petrol Conditioner each time you fill up with E10 also offers ongoing protection.

Case Study: Porsche 718S

A 1000 Mile road test savings assessment on a 2018 718S petrol 2.5L turbo with 350 bhp by Dan Clarke.

During a week long road trip of Scotland and the Isle of Skye, I found an opportunity to test a petrol car that had never used ElimiNOX before to see what happened. Part of the motivation to do this was drawn from rising fuel prices with average driver now expected to pay £72 (source: mirror.co.uk)

One possible way to do this is to look at the average speed over a distanced travelled. My car records this, so as long as those average speeds are fairly close to each other when comparing pre and post ElimiNOX Eco™ treatment, then we can probably assume that the MPG measurements are genuine and not a reflection of say, town driving with an average speed of 25mph vs a motorway run at 60mph which would obviously skew the MPG results. It should all have evened out. Here we have two drivers with different styles, my wife and I, sharing the driving equally and also a variety of roads from motorways, A roads, B roads to unmade tracks. There was some cruising, some pootling round towns and some vigorous overtaking manoeuvres on the A roads. So this test encompasses a good range of driving styles and types.

MPG = 29.9 My car has recently had a major service by a main dealer. It’s only 3 years old and is in tip top shape; brand new set of brakes and Pirelli P-Zero tyres all round.

Pre ElimiNOX Eco™ the average speed was 36mph, a range of driving over a 454 miles distance. 
MPG = 31.4

I then hit reset on this and sent everything back to zero and filled up with normal 95 octane petrol and a 1:1000 ratio.

From the moment I put  ElimiNOX Eco™  in up till 900 miles later (so 3 full tanks) the average speed is 39mph (so a fairly close approximation of driving’s styles and types of road have been covered and evened out compared to 36mph pre  ElimiNOX Eco™ )

MPG = 34.2

For the last 165 miles of this journey I used the second trip counter on the car (so this is the final 165 of the total 903), I wanted to see the final true new MPG now that ElimiNOX Eco™ has well and truly worked it’s way through the car and the detergent / cleaning effects are being seen as well as the combustion improvement. The average speed was again very close at 38mph. 







Case Study: BMW 520d X Drive 

A Six-Month savings assessment on a brand-new BMW 520d X Drive by Stephen Bamford (Retired Director of The SulNOx Group Plc).

Over the past six months, I have done a savings assessment on my new car and the numbers are incorporated with photographs from the car’s computer; December 2020 to March 2021  without the ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner and April to June 2021 with the fuel treated at 1 part per 2000 parts of diesel. 

  • The vehicle used for the savings assessment : BMW 520d X Drive 
  • After three months of general driving, the mpg shows 38.5 on Shell Standard Diesel but with no ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner added. 
  • After six weeks of using the ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner (late April). The reading is now showing 42.5mpg. 
  • The final reading at the end of June 2021 shows a reading of 43.7mpg. 

Costs and Savings Data 

On 31st March, I added 33mls of ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner  to a full tank using Standard Shell Diesel at 131p per litre =£86.46.

Assuming 8p per millilitre (full RRP price in UK) at 1 part per 2000 the cost was 33 X 8p =£2.64 – Hence a full tank incorporating ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner costs £89.10.

The increase in miles per gallon went from 38.5 to 43.7 = 13.5% (period end March 2021, to end June 2021)
The increase in cost with the ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner is £86.46 to £89.10 = 3.0%

The net financial savings are therefore 10.5%

38.5 mpg

After three months of general driving on Shell Standard Diesel but with no ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner added.

42.5 mpg

After six weeks of using the ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner (late April). 

43.7 mpg

The final reading at the end of June 2021 shows a further improvement

Driver observations and conclusions 

  • Since using the ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner, I found immediate responsiveness from the accelerator. This must be the “Lubricity Effect”. (Identified in the Bureau Veritas Certification) 
  • The engine at high speeds was totally silent and all I could hear was the wind noise. 
  • The ride was totally smooth and there were no vibrations at all. 

Owners of larger more expensive cars will tend to use Shell V8 rather than Shell Standard. For these drivers, the news is even better. Shell V8 is 146p per litre rather than 131p per litre so the financial savings are 10.3% before all the benefits shown above. (i.e. – a total of 20%+)

The addition of ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner offers the environmental reductions in toxic emissions “for free” – Shell V8 does not.

With results like this, why would I ever drive without the ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner in the future? The answer is quite simple – I will not!

Fuel Conditioner EN590 Certification

The board of the directors of the Company (the “Board”) is pleased to confirm that the UK unit of Bureau Veritas, a world-leading provider of testing, inspection, and certification services, has certified that automotive diesel fuel with the Company’s SulnoxEco™ Fuel Conditioner added at the recommended level, continues to comply with the European Committee for Standardization’s EN-590 standard. As a result, users of SulnoxEco™ Fuel Conditioner will not only benefit from significantly improved engine and fuel performance but will retain any engine warranties that they may hold. In effect, this now means that all Diesel engines across the globe can benefit from this product and its world class certification.

The SulNOxEco™ Fuel Conditioner is produced under licence by a global leading speciality chemicals business (as set out in the Company’s AQSE Admission Document), so the Board is confident that production can be scaled-up as demand requires.

Radu Florescu (CEO) commented:

“The SulNOxEco™ Fuel Conditioner improves combustion and hence the fuel economy achieved, cleans the engine from the inside, thus reducing the need to replace expensive diesel filters, and most importantly dramatically reduces toxic emissions such as PM 2.5, Co2, NOx and others. The recent verdict at Southwark Coroner’s Court in London which found that air pollution “made a material contribution” to the tragic death of a child demonstrates the vital importance of reducing toxic emissions from vehicles.

With the financial savings from improved fuel economy typically greater than the cost of the product, its benefits come at an effective no-cost basis for the user. Politicians, environmental campaigners, the media, and most importantly, the general public, have long awaited positive news in the environmental debate. This Bureau Veritas certification is just that, and a landmark moment for the shareholders of the SulNOx Group.”

Jimmy Redman Jnr (the inventor of the SulNOx Group’s proprietary technology) & Tom Crawford (Chief Engineer of the SulNOx Group) added:

“The SulNOx team are delighted that tests already carried out by its own “In House” Research and Development Department have now been ratified by no less an authority than Bureau Veritas. These tests confirm that our product, the SulNOxEco™ Fuel Conditioner, when added at our recommended concentration of 1-part SulNOxEco per 2,000 parts diesel, does not compromise any of the standards established by EN-590. An important factor is that this Bureau Veritas Certificate of Quality No. 53229-2 indicates an improvement in “Lubricity” from a wear scar figure of 325 to 223, an improvement of 31.39%. This confirms the lubricity tests carried out in our own laboratory in East Sussex, UK in January 2021, a tangible demonstration of the reduced engine wear from its use.”
