United Petroleum Stations are dramatically cutting the price of all E10 fuel across Queensland, in a bid to get motorists to make the switch to ‘cleaner fuel’.
Treasurer Curtis Pitt announced the news on Tuesday, confirming United is making its E10 fuel six cents per litre cheaper – but only for a limited time.
“United Petroleum already offers discounted regular unleaded fuel price right across Queensland, so this is another welcome business move by this industry disruptor,” Mr Pitt said.

“E10 is a Queensland-made biofuel and now Queensland motorists will get a special Queensland-only discount price.
United Petroleum CEO Gary Brinkworth said the company’s ongoing investment in the State’s biofuels and bio-manufacturing industry is creating jobs for regional Queenslanders and adding value to the State’s abundant agricultural resources.
“We took the decision that the best way in which we could support the Queensland Government’s recent biofuel mandate was by taking this direct and decisive action and encourage motorists to make the switch,” he said.
“We know that once consumers try our E10 they’ll enjoy the extra zip and cleaner fuel system in their cars and we’re sure that drastically reducing the price of our E10 clearly demonstrates that we are playing our part in fuelling growth for regional Queensland and creating a cleaner environment for the next generation.
The new E10 pricing will be rolled out at over 50 sites across Queensland today.
