In a move designed to remove confusion when travelling abroad, a new European standard will introduce uniform fuel station labels across EU and EEA member states.
The old labels will be removed and new symbols will appear, starting October this year.E5, E10 or E85 in a circle for conventional fuel; B7, B10 or XTL in a square for diesel; H2, CNG, LPG or LNG in a lozenge for gaseous fuels.
The number represents the percentage of biofuel it contains, for conventional fuel and diesel labels, while in the case of gaseous fuels, the letters indicate what kind of gas is available.
New vehicles and on fuel dispensers, in addition to being printed in new vehicle manuals will the new labels be used.
In all 28 European Union member states, in EEA member states (i.e. Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and in CEN members will the labels be used. PWKD08102018
