We work with a network of trusted domestic heating oil suppliers who also supply Red Diesel (Gas Oil) and White Diesel (DERV) in their product ranges. However, at present we don't supply commercial fuel, oil and diesel for purchase through the Fuelfighter website. If you are looking for a reputable supplier for commercial fuels please contact us and we will be happy to assist.
Commercial fuel Red Diesel is sometimes known as gas oil, tractor diesel, 35 second oil or pink diesel. Red diesel is taxed at a lower rate to white road diesel (DERV) and is generally used in agricultural machinery, plant machinery, boats, generators and forklifts. Some older heating systems also use red diesel. These are usually found in schools or commercial units. Due to the lower tax rate Red Diesel has some restrictions in its use, which can be found on the UK government website.
Please note: It is illegal to use Red Diesel in road vehicles. If you need advice on using commercial fuel please call us on 03300583949.
White diesel is also known as DERV (Diesel Engine Road Vehicle), or road diesel. It is regularly used in standard road vehicles like cars, vans, trucks and coaches.
