All Porsche models – including the new 911 GT3 – are designed to operate on fuels with an ethanol content of up to 10%, e.g. ‘E10’. Ethanol has a positive impact on the CO2 balance since the plants grown for the production of this biofuel also absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.
The release of hydrocarbons from the fuel system has been minimized thanks to the active carbon filter and the multi-layered material from which the fuel tank is made. All fuel lines are made from multi-layered plastic, steel or aluminum.
