What is Gas Oil used for?

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 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.

Who can still use Gas Oil and other rebated fuel after the 31st March 2022?

• “For vehicles and machinery used in agriculture, horticulture, fish farming and forestry.
This includes allowing vehicles used for agriculture to be used for cutting verges and hedges, snow clearance and gritting roads
• To propel passenger, freight or maintenance vehicles designed to run on rail tracks.
• For heating and electricity generation in non-commercial premises – this includes the heating of homes and buildings such as places of worship, hospitals and town halls; off-grid power generation; and non-propulsion uses on permanently-moored houseboats
• For maintaining community amateur sports clubs as well as golf courses (including activities such as ground maintenance, and the heating and lighting of clubhouses, changing rooms etc.)
• As fuel for all marine craft refuelling and operating in the UK (including fishing and water freight industries), except for propelling private pleasure craft in Northern Ireland
• For powering the machinery (including caravans) of travelling fairs and circuses”. Even then, there are particular rules on how red diesel can be used in these approved areas.
For more info please refer to Government guidance via the link below.
These rules will also extend fuel duty to “biodiesel, bioblends and fuel substitutes used in heating, applying the rebated duty rate to non-commercial heating and the full rate of duty to commercial heating.” (Source:
