Will petrol still be available after 2040?

Will we be able to still drive classic cars after the deadline of 2040? Do you think petrol would be still available at this time please?

While the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles will be banned, fuel will still be available for used vehicles. There are currently 37 million vehicles on the UK's road - that's up from 32 million in 2014. So while you won't be able to buy a new petrol vehicle, you will still be able to get fuel for your old one.
