The New South Wales Government is ensuring that ethanol-blended petrol is becoming widely available and has set a mandate requiring that 6% of the total volume of petrol sold in NSW is ethanol.

Shell supports this mandate by offering Shell Unleaded which contains up to 10% ethanol as the maingrade fuel at the majority of sites in NSW. Some sites in regional NSW locations offer a choice between regular Shell Unleaded and Shell Unleaded E10. If you are a Shell Card customer and your card is activated for regular Shell Unleaded, it will automatically be activated for Shell Unleaded E10.
