What is red diesel used for?
Red diesel is a reduced/low duty fuel specifically for use in non-road going vehicles, plant and machinery or for home heating. It is also subject to a lower 5% VAT rate unless over 2300 litres is delivered in any single delivery, then it must revert back to 20% VAT.
The fuel is marked with a special red dye allowing Customs and Excise to identify when and where red diesel has been used, and also to trace the origins of supply.
- Plant – Cranes, excavators, diggers, dumpers, bulldozers, telescopic handlers, skid steers, fork lift trucks, rollers.
- Industrial Heating i.e. furnaces, schools, churches, town halls, large residential blocks, swimming pools, interruptible mains gas sites.
- Agricultural Machines – Tractors, diggers, balers, mowers.
- Power Generation – Diesel generators, fire sprinkler systems, data centre backup power units, refrigeration units.
