Red Diesel Suppliers Leeds
Not many people know the similarities and differences that exist between automotive diesel fuel for road use and red diesel. Although, there are some slight chemical differences between them, due to the marker dye, and the colour and price, these differences are not as important as the legalities involved in their consumption with respect to users.
Red diesel is also known as gas oil for construction and farming, but it is also known as heating oil by name and in function. It is less expensive than road diesel (derv) although they are chemically similar. Additional red dye is included in gas oil for easy recognition by HMRC when dip testing. Red diesel is taxed differently compared to road diesel and it is a lot cheaper. As a result of the similarity between automotive diesel and gas oil, law enforcement agencies know that consumers may want to use the latter in place of the former as fuel for their cars in order to save money. To dissuade this act and easily apprehend offenders, the red marker dye is added to the fuel.
One can find red-dyed fuel to buy wherever heating oil is used to heat homes. Tanker trucks are used to move the oil to individual residents by heating oil vendors. The oil is used by oil furnaces after it has been pumped into heating oil storage containers.
Red diesel can also be put to commercial uses. Construction companies’ bulldozers, diesel generators, bobcats, cranes, backhoes and other off-road diesel engines use red diesel. Farmers are some of the few people that are permitted to use this low-cost diesel called red diesel to power machines in their fields like tractors and harvesters.
The government through its Department of Transport has confirmed that during extreme weather, farmers in Leeds as well as other parts of country, can use red diesel in their tractors to help clear and grit snow from public roads.
