Useful information about diesel

The word “diesel” is derived from the German inventor Rudolf Christian Karl Diesel who invented the diesel engine.

Diesel fuel differs from gasoline in several ways, e.g.:

  • diesel is composed of larger hydrocarbon molecules, which have higher boiling points
  • diesel is much less prone to evaporation
  • diesel has a considerably higher ‘energy density’

The price of diesel usually rises during the winter time as demand for heating oil rises, which is refined in a very similar way to diesel.

Fuel quality regulations specify that additional refining is required to lower sulphur contents, which can also contribute to a higher cost.

Crown Oil has been supplying road diesel, white diesel and red diesel for over 65 years.
