ACEA position concerning diesel that might contain more than 7% FAME

In June 2008, ACEA’s statement on biofuels laid out the conditions necessary for the European automobile industry to support the rollout of B7 diesel (and E10 petrol) across member states of the European Union as a means of supporting the Renewable Energy Strategy of the EU.

ACEA offered that all new vehicles would be compatible with either B7 diesel (or E10 petrol) by 2010 – the auto industry invested and delivered on that promise.
