What Is Road Diesel (DERV)?

DERV is a type of fuel that is used in on-road vehicles to keep fleets moving. DERV stands for Diesel Engine Road Vehicle, but the fuel is also known as white diesel or road diesel. DERV is most commonly used to power transport and passenger vehicles that have diesel engines, such as trains, lorries, vans and boats. Certa is a leading DERV supplier in Ireland with extensive experience supplying high-quality DERV fuel to businesses.

What Vehicles Use DERV?

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 DERV?

The price of DERV changes daily due to influences from the global oil market, so it’s impossible to publish fixed DERV prices online. The quantity and location of the customer can also have an impact on DERV prices, so it’s best to request a quote from a reputable supplier to check what the current price of DERV is. At Certa, we're proud to be a leading DERV supplier and we strive to offer our customers a great DERV price. As bulk DERV suppliers, our infrastructure, network and buying power enables us to provide a competitive, reliable service to cater to our customers’ needs.
