Bioethanol seduces French motorists

Wednesday, January 26, 2022
In a Europe that is massively converting to electric or hybrid, France and Sweden are the two great defenders of bioethanol. In 2021, sales of this fuel produced from beets, cereals or sugar residues, mixed with gasoline, increased by 33% at the pump, according to figures from the Bioethanol Collective. The fuel known under the code E85 represents 4% of gasoline sales today in France. Last year, 30,000 French motorists installed a conversion box on their vehicle, twice as many as in 2020. If the French take the bait, it is mainly because of the price: bioethanol is half the price of gasoline thanks to a very advantageous taxation in particular. It is also a selling point since it is presented by its promoters as the "fuel of purchasing power".
