Will the new red diesel rules affect your business?

The UK government removed the entitlement to use red diesel for many sectors from the 1st April 2022. This means many businesses have to use fuel that’s taxed at the standard rate for road diesel (DERV).

Red diesel and rebated fuel entitlement is now restricted to the following purposes:

  • Rail transport
  • Community amateur sport clubs and golf courses
  • Sailing, boating and marine transport (excluding private pleasure craft in Northern Ireland)
  • Travelling fairs and circuses
  • Fuel used for non-commercial purposes – electricity generation and heating
  • Agriculture, horticulture, fish farming and forestry

The change in legislation is designed to encourage users to switch to low emission fuels; the higher the cost of diesel, the greater the motivation to improve energy efficiency and choose cleaner alternatives.

Competitive market prices on red diesel

Buying red diesel is a great way for eligible users to save money as it’s a cheaper alternative to white diesel.

These savings are then passed on to our valued customers in the form of lower red diesel fuel prices, helping us to stay competitive.

What is red diesel fuel?

Red diesel is a robust fuel which can be used in a variety of applications. It’s widely known as gas oil and is commonly used in agriculture, horticulture and forestry sectors. Red diesel is significantly cheaper to purchase than regular diesel due to the lower fuel duty applied.

Looking for a bulk red diesel delivery? You can purchase in quantities ranging from 500 litres right through to 36,000 litres (or more).

Don’t have suitable storage facilities? You can also order red diesel in 205-litre barrels, providing you with more flexibility in the amount you wish to order.

Should you use red diesel or white diesel?

If you’re unsure of which type of diesel you should be using and need some help deciding between the two, read on for a quick overview to get you up to speed on the differences.

The main consideration for anybody considering which diesel fuel to use is where you plan to use it. Red diesel can only be used by a select few sectors and industries for certain applications, whilst the rules for the use of white diesel or DERV are far less restrictive.

Those found to be using red diesel illegally, or in vehicles on public roads, will be hit with fines and could even have their vehicle detained.
