Gas Oil (Red Diesel) is a part of a family of heavy oils made from the fractional distillation of petroleum. In the UK, it is used in the construction and agricultural sectors, and for heating applications. Red diesel cannot be used for road vehicles, to help the authorities combat this a fuel dye is added. Red diesel prices are much lower than white diesel, due to a lower rate of fuel tax.
