What is Red Diesel?

Red diesel fuel is similar to automotive white diesel but is significantly less expensive to purchase. To differentiate the lower-taxed red diesel product from the higher-taxed white diesel used in automotives, red diesel fuel has a red dye added. Red diesel is widely known as medium diesel, gas oil, heating oil and generator fuel in the industry. However, other names like tractor diesel, cherry red diesel oil, 35 seconds and digger fuel are also used globally.

Uses of Red Diesel

Red diesel is widely used as commercial fuel, industrial fuel and as heating oil. Marine red diesel is also widely used.

Home Heating Oil

Red diesel fuel is used as home heating oil. It is chemically similar to white diesel but the heating oil price is significantly less. Since heating oil prices are taxed much less than diesel, a red dye is added to the fuel to differentiate the lower-taxed product. The red-dyed fuel is sold wherever homes are heated by heating oil. To receive your domestic heating oil price and general heating oil price give Birmingham Fuels Oils a call on 0844 812 4967 to get an instant quote.

Commercial uses of Red Diesel

Commercal use of red diesel fuel is far reaching. Construction companies use it in their off-road diesel engines. Engines found in bulldozers, backhoes, cranes, bobcats and diesel generators are just a few that require red diesel. Farmers use red diesel in agriculture in their tractors, combine harvesters and any other diesel-powered equipment they use in agriculture. Certain aviation fuels are red diesel and also carnivals, road shows and fairs can legally use it in their diesel engines as long as they are not transporting their equipment over public roads.

Law on Red diesel

Law enforcement agencies are aware of the similarity between home heating oil and white diesel, and they know that consumers might purchase the less costly heating oil to use as automotive diesel fuel in their diesel cars. To discourage that behavior, a red dye is added to the product to mark it as heating oil. Highway police officers throughout the country are equipped with red dye indicators that quickly identify the illegal fuel. Motorists who are caught using it will subsequently be prosecuted for fuel tax evasion.
