Gasoline E10 or petrol E10 is a fuel used in internal combustion engines that contains 10% biologically-derived ethanol and 90% petroleum-derived gasoline. Burning gasoline E10 releases 2.123 kg carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) of greenhouse gas (GHG). This does not include GHG from the production or transport of the fuel. The GHG emissions from the combustion of the biofuel portion is not included in the emissions data. The total emissions, including the biofuels portion, is 2.275 kg carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) of greenhouse gas (GHG).
