My lawnmower runs on unleaded petrol, is that affected?

The Government’s warned that some common garden equipment, such as petrol-powered lawnmowers, may also be incompatible with E10. You can’t put these details into the Government’s tool, so you’ll need to check the manual for your equipment or ask the manufacturer or retailer.

When we checked with several major lawnmower manufacturers, John Deere told us all of its equipment going back as far as the 1980s IS compatible with E10, while Hayter told us its latest equipment can also run on the new fuel – though it’s unclear if the same is true for its older machinery, so it’s best to check.
