The entire population of Lancashire include around 64% Christians, 10% Muslims, 15.4% No Religion and remaining 10.6% miscellaneous.

In the UK, red diesel is also known as gas oil. Red diesel in Lancashire is used in all kinds of construction and agricultural vehicles such as bulldozers, cranes, and tractors. Red diesel (gas oil) is basically diesel fuel with a red dye added to it. They do this to create a fuel which is low in tax and used under certain laws.
The process of colouring the fuel involves mixing a liquid red marker dye which contains various chemicals. Since this is low taxed fuel it is not allowed to be used to fuel vehicles which use the public highways and those which would normally rely on road diesel (derv).
Why Do We Have Diesel That’s Coloured Red
It is considered that mixing a liquid colour into a liquid fuel is far more simple than mixing a powdered color into it. Dyeing fuel with colour is essential according to the law in many countries. The reason behind colouring the fuel is that while crossing customs or excise it can be easily identified as of what type of tax should be charged against it.
Normally, red diesel is either low taxed or it is absolutely non-taxed which makes it quite cheaper to import or export. Lancashire gave birth to the police force and it’s them who’ll be knocking at the door of anybody caught using this red fuel illegally.
