Gas Oil

Gas Oil is a distillate fuel manufactured to give clean burning, maximum heat output and efficient combustion in boilers and off-road diesel engines. It is a 'rebated' gas oil, (reduced rate of excise duty) and as such is dyed red and contains chemical markers in accordance to Customs and Excise requirements, to prevent its use as a fuel in road vehicles.

Gas Oil exceeds the latest requirements of relevant British Standard Specification BS 2869 Class A2 and D. Fuel properties are seasonally adjusted to maintain good low temperature operability.

Gas Oil is a "dual purpose" fuel and is recommended as a boiler fuel in domestic or light industrial installations with pressure jet burners and as a diesel fuel for off-the-highway equipment such as stationary diesel engines, farm tractors, construction equipment, railway and marine engines.
