You could actually be saving money and best of all, there is no need to worry about draining your existing stocks of gas oil from your tanks, it can simply be added to your grain dryer’s fuel tank without any issues, with all future top-ups solely made using IHO.

If you have any questions about your grain dryer fuel requirements or how to make the switch IHO. Give our friendly and knowledgeable team a call today on 0330 123 1444 to learn more about our fuel and how we can help you save money with zero VAT.

What is industrial heating oil?

Crown IHO is specifically intended for use wherever Class A2 gas oil or Class D gas oil can be used for the production of hot water, steam or other forms of heat generation. i.e. boilers, dryers, heaters & furnaces.

IHO is an extremely cost-effective direct replacement for gas oil in your grain dryers and is strictly prohibited for use in both on and off-road vehicles or any other static or mobile engines.
