Petrol-fuelled vehicles

All compatible Queensland Government petrol vehicles are to be refuelled using E10 where it is practical to do so. It is deemed to be practical to use E10 if the vehicle is compatible with E10, and E10 is available at the service station where the fuel is intended to be purchased or at a suitable alternative service station.

Read the retail fuel purchases policy (PDF, 183.8KB) to learn more.

The majority of petrol-fuelled government vehicles are E10 compatible.

To check if you can refuel your fleet vehicle with E10:

Use the E10 OK Fuel finder to locate the nearest E10 service station when preparing for your journey.

Diesel-fuelled vehicles

Under national fuel standards, B5 diesel is considered compatible with all diesel engines and can be sold unlabeled in Australia.

Diesel

Refuel QFleet diesel motor vehicles with diesel available from service stations.

B10 diesel

Only a limited number of QFleet vehicles can be refuelled with B10 (a biofuel blend containing 10% biodiesel). This fuel is not yet widely available, not compatible with all diesel engines and must be labeled at the bowser.

To check your fleet vehicle’s compatibility with B10:

  • refer to the vehicle owner’s manual, located in the glove compartment
  • contact QFleet 07 3008 2633.

AdBlue

Also known as diesel exhaust fluid, AdBlue is used to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. It is stored in a separate tank and automatically injected into the exhaust system when the engine is running.

A limited number of QFleet vehicles use AdBlue.

The AdBlue filler cap is usually located next to the fuel filler cap and coloured blue.

AdBlue should only be put into the AdBlue filler and under no circumstances be added to the fuel tank.

To check your fleet vehicle’s compatibility with AdBlue:

  • look for the AdBlue cap next to the vehicles fuel cap
  • refer to the vehicle owner’s manual, located in the glove compartment
  • contact QFleet 07 3008 2633.
