PM Modi to launch blended petrol on Monday, 2 years ahead of target

PM Modi will launch E20, or petrol blended with 20% ethanol on Monday, bringing forward by two years the launch of cleaner-burning version of the common man’s fuel with the dual purpose of reducing oil imports and vehicular emission. “The PM will launch the fuel by pressing a nozzle at the ‘India Energy Week’ conference to start E20 sale at 67 pumps. We started at 1.4% ethanol blending in 2014 and achieved 10% blending five months ahead of the November 2022 target,” a govt functionary said.
