Agriculatural Fuel Types

Red Diesel / Gas Oil

Red Diesel is the same as DERV, however it has a red dye running through it. Tractor diesel as it is also known, can only be used in off-road vehicles and machinery as it has a lower tax rate applied to it. The red dye identifies it, and ensures no-one uses the lower tax fuel if they shouldn’t. Being caught using it for something unauthorised can lead to high penalties, and/or potentially a jail sentence - it is just not worth the risk.


DERV stands for Diesel-engined road vehicle, and is the trade name often used to describe the road fuel used by most lorries, buses, vans and cars. We also know it as white diesel or road diesel as it is the same as what you see on most fuel forecourts in the UK.
