What is Commercial Kerosene?

Kerosene is a low viscosity oil that has a range of commercial uses. Also known as 28-second oil, paraffin or kero, this pale, yellow or clear fuel oil has a lower viscosity and lower freezing point than gas oil (red diesel). It also has a longer shelf-life, making it a reliable oil for many industries.

Kerosene is a versatile fuel that is popular in various industries and has a range of applications across agriculture and commercial sectors, as well as for domestic home use. The oil can be used to fuel jets, heat homes and business, as lighting oil and even as a cleaning agent.

Where is Kerosene Used?

DERV (Diesel Engine Road Vehicle) is a liquid fuel product that is used to power road vehicles. The fuel is also known as white diesel or road diesel and can technically be used in any diesel-powered engine, but is more commonly used in lorries, HGVs (Heavy Goods Vehicles), LCVs (Light Commercial Vehicles), vans, trains, buses and coaches.

DERV is typically used in businesses with vehicle fleets who need to transport passengers and goods over both long and short distances. Unlike other industry fuels that are rebated to help with business costs, government duty tax applies to DERV fuel.

What is the Cost of Kerosene?

Kerosene is usually significantly cheaper than gasoline, but more expensive than regular fuel. The price of kerosene changes daily due to influences from the global oil market and prices can also be impacted by order quantity and location. The best way to find out the current price of kerosene is to contact a reputable kerosene supplier for an up-to-date quote.
