Honda Cars India – commitment to renewable fuels and sustainability, E20 fuel compatibility since 2009
Buckle up, because Honda has been ahead of the curve when it comes to renewable fuels for over a decade. It was in 2009 that Honda began manufacturing E20 Material Compatible cars in India. Cars that have always been compatible with E20 fuel (20 percent ethanol and 80 percent gasoline).
E20 fuel blend is being presented as a renewable and cleaner alternative to traditional gasoline by GoI. And Honda’s forward-thinking approach ensured that customers would have safe and efficient options. Long before it became a regulatory requirement.
Material Compatibility: All Honda Cars Since 2009 are E20 Fuel Compatible
E20 material compatibility means such vehicles can run on this fuel blend without any negative effects on durability. This commitment mitigates the risk of affecting materials in the fuel system. It provides customers with the confidence to use E20 fuel with ease.
Honda cars have always been designed to work with new fuel types, without causing harm or damage to the parts that come in contact with the fuel. This puts Honda in a strong position to support the Indian government’s push for increased adoption of E20 fuel. The Ethanol Blended Programme aims at achieve a blending percentage of 20 percent by 2025.
