Since January 1, 2018, the nationwide switch from RON A92 to bio-fuel E5 has been in effect, however, along with good feedback, a number of customers have been expressing concerns about the quality of the new fuel.

According to newswire Nhandan, on the first day of selling, a massive volume of people bought bio-fuel E5.

“Numerous people said that bio-fuel E5 is a fire hazard and is more expensive than RON A92, however, I have been using bio-fuel E5 since mid-December 2017 and have yet to see any difference,” said Nguyen Thanh Cong, a customer from Cau Giay.

Besides, a lot of people decided to switch to bio-fuel E5. Nguyen Thi Hoa from Ba Dinh district stated that she researched bio-fuel E5 and knows that it is safe for vehicles and the selling price is cheaper than RON 95, thus, she decided on using bio-fuel E5.

On the other hand, although numerous petroleum stations hang out banner to introduce bio-fuel E5 to customers, numerous people are still hesitant. Tuan, a customer from Dong Da district, said that he has yet to trust the quality of bio-fuel E5 to use in his car.
