What is bunker fuel / marine gas oil?
Bunker fuel is a robust type of fuel oil which is used to powerboats, ships and other marine vessels with diesel engines. It’s known widely as gas oil, marine gas oil and marine diesel, but it’s also called bunker diesel, marine fuel oil and fuel oils.
The term ‘bunker’ is commonly coupled with gas oil and diesel fuel because it is the name of the ship’s fuel storage area (also known as a fuel tank). Bunkers were also used for storing coal before ships ran on diesel and relied on steam power. On a marina, port or harbour, you’ll also find diesel storage areas called bunkers too.
