Red diesel - Gas Oil (Class A2)

Red diesel is a low tax fuel for vehicles used in the agricultural construction industries. As red diesel carries a significantly lower tax levy than clear or white fuels it is a criminal offence to use on public roads in a domestic vehicle.

Red diesel is the low duty form of diesel and can be used in off-road untaxed vehicles i.e. agricultural/industrial/construction machinery and as home heating only. As this fuel is minimally taxed, it cannot be used as automotive diesel fuel in normal cars. Customs and Excise regulations require minimally taxed diesel to have a special red dye. This way the inspectors can quickly and conclusively identify the presence of it and take appropriate action against the offender.
