Changes to the Red Diesel Duty

Red diesel is a reduced/low duty fuel and 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 chemical marker red dye allowing Customs and Excise to identify when and where red diesel has been used, and also to trace the origins of supply.

The rules surrounding using red diesel have now changed, with many sectors losing their entitlement from 1 April 2022. Please note – it’s illegal to use red diesel in road-going vehicles.

What is Red Diesel?

Red diesel also known as tractor diesel is a low duty form of white diesel which can be used in untaxed off-road vehicles and machines i.e. in agriculture, rail transport and non-commercial electricity generation and heating.

Red diesel is subject to minimal taxation, making it unsuitable for use as regular automotive diesel fuel in standard cars.

I have been a loyal customer of Compass Fuels for the past five years, and they are an incredibly friendly and customer-focused company. Olly and his brother, who are usually responsible for delivering the oil, are a pleasure to deal with. They are always friendly, and I enjoy chatting with them whenever they come to deliver the oil. Compass Fuels is a genuine company with an excellent people culture, and they deserve all the success they have achieved. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy fuel supplier.

The new boiler ran out of fuel in the middle of the night and this caused several issue's as you can imagine. A quick panicked phone call first thing and the reply was perfect, "don't worry, we'll get some out to you". Less than 1 hour later he was onsite with fuel. excellent service and really helped us out, can't thank them enough.
