But why should you choose red diesel for your forklift trucks, and what are the benefits of this?

What are the advantages of using red diesel for forklift trucks?

There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing red diesel for your forklift trucks. These benefits include:

  • Save money- Red diesel is cheaper than other diesel options, and some other fuel options because this is a heavily rebated fuel. What this means is that VAT for this fuel type is only 5%, instead of the usual 20%, for any single delivery less than 2300 litres. This can help cut your fuel costs, and keep costs down all year round.
  • Fuel tank lasts longer- for a standard diesel forklift truck, an average fuel tank of 50 litres will last much longer than an 18 kg bottle of gas in like for like usage, for an LPG forklift. This means that you wont have to change out the oil as frequently, and will need to do less maintenance as a result of this.
  • Can be used outside in the winter- for sites where forklift trucks need to be in use outdoors, even in the cold winter months, red diesel can be the perfect solution. This is because red diesel generates more heat than others, allowing your forklift trucks to start, even on the coldest of days.
