Red Diesel is also known by a variety of names such as gas oil, tractor diesel, generator fuel, agricultural diesel, heating oil and cherry fuel. It is a low duty form of diesel when compared to the ‘white’/standard road diesel. Chemically, it is only slightly different from regular diesel but there is a significant difference in cost.
This type of fuel could work well in vehicles as it is cheaper, however that undermined fuel tax. Therefore to ensure that this doesn’t happen revenue agents require red diesel as a machinery or engineering fuel to be dyed red to differentiate. The dye can be detected in even small samples so it is very difficult to use as vehicle fuel.
White Diesel (Road Diesel) is used to fuel a variety of vehicles and is made of a blend of crude oil components. Despite being used for similar purposes to gasoline it burns quite differently and therefore needs a different type of engine to work. Diesel is heavier and less volatile than gasoline but is often found to be more efficient especially when vehicles are carrying heavy loads which is why is it an ideal fuel for farms and agricultural industry.
Kerosene is sometimes known as paraffin oil and is a fuel for farms. It is a combustible liquid obtained by distilling petroleum at very high temperatures. While kerosene can be extracted from coal, oil shale, and wood, it is primarily derived from refined petroleum. Kerosene used to be widely used oil lamps and was one of the most crucial refinery products. However, today kerosene is used primarily as heating oils, fuel in jet engines and in terms of agriculture it is a solvent for insecticide sprays.
