Gas oil

10ppm Gasoil is a middle distillate, rebated fuel which is commonly referred to as red diesel. It is predominantly used for non-road mobile machinery and commercial heating.

10PPM Sulphur Gasoil EN 2869:2010 + A1:2011 Class A2

Notes

1. Latest test methods or technical equivalent used.
2. Unless otherwise advised the following seasonal dates apply: Summer: 16/03 - 15/11, Winter: 16/11 - 15/03
3. May contain an ignition improver in which case carbon residue test is not valid and the cetane number minimum will apply.
4. The limiting value for carbon residue is based on product prior to addition of ignition improver, if used. If a value exceeding the limit is obtained on a finished fuel, alkyl nitrate presence should be calculated in accordance with BS EN ISO 13759. If an ignition improver is present, the limit value for carbon residue of the product shall not be applied. Use of additives does not exempt fuels from conforming to the maximum 0.30% (m/m) carbon residue prior to addition.
5. Calculation of the cetane index will also require distillation values at 10%, 50% and 90% (V/V) recovery points.
6. Sulphur measurements include HMRC approved marker.
7. Oxidation stability by BS 2000-388 is a requirement for all fuels. BS EN 15751 is an additional requirement for fuels containing FAME at concentrations at/or exceeding 2.0% (V/V).
8. FAME meets the requirements of BS EN 14214.
