We will be posting updates in the coming months with more information and advice for businesses. The government announced at Budget 2020, that it will be removing the entitlement to use red diesel from a number of sectors. Those sectors will need to change over to white diesel.

What is Red Diesel?

Also known as gas oil and 35 second oil, red diesel is a cost-efficient fuel, commonly used in construction and agriculture. Gas oil is a cheaper option in comparison to using road fuel, due to the way it is taxed, but is illegal to use on the road.
