What is kerosene?

Kerosene is a fast burning and easily ignitable hydrocarbon fluid used for fuel in heating systems. The word kerosene was trademarked by the North American Gas Light Company in 1854. This meant they were the only company allowed to use the word kerosene commercially. However, it has since been given a generic trademark and anybody can use this term to describe heating oil and paraffin.

Kerosene is more commonly known as paraffin oil in the UK. It can be purchased in small quantities right through to large, bulk orders of 36,000 litres plus. The colour of kerosene varies on its type, but normal kerosene oil (28-second burning oil) will generally be a clear – yellow shade.

What is kerosene used for?

Kerosene oil is used for home heating and industrial procedures needing low sulphur fuel. Its clean burn characteristics maintain a high heat output at cheaper costs. This makes it ideal for your central heating needs.

Facts about kerosene/heating oil

  • It’s widely known as home heating oil
  • It is a liquid mixture of chemicals created from the distillation of crude oil
  • It’s used to power jet-engined aircraft
  • Kero can also be used as a cleaning solution
  • To avoid it being confused with other oils, kerosene is usually stored in a blue or blue labelled barrel, drum or container
  • Before the invention of electricity, kerosene was used throughout the UK in lanterns as a source of lighting fuel

Kerosene prices in 2019

The price of kerosene can be very cheap when used as a heating oil and depending on when you order it. This is why kerosene is the preferred domestic heating oil in the UK, being used in an estimated 1.5 million homes.

Kerosene as jet fuel however is of a significant quality and can be costly due to the stringent testing and safety guidelines which are associated with its manufacture.

Used as a trusted cleaning agent, kerosene can work out as a very cheap alternative (price per litre) to buying specialist cleaning products.

As nationwide kerosene suppliers, Speedy Fuels can supply you with fuel in a matter of hours, if there is an emergency, anywhere in the UK. Call us today for a competitive quote on today’s kerosen price.

What does the peak kerosene price mean for you – and should you be worried?

Kerosene prices follow the trend of crude oil barrrell prices – and that is that in years where the price per barrell of crude oil is stable, then the price of heating oil will generally peak during the winter period as demand rises.

However if the price of crude rises for other reasons (such as a drop in production), then the price of kerosene will rise accordingly and reach peak price before winter (if production increases in winter, then the lowest prices will be during highest demand).

Scarcity of crude deposits can also impact peak oil prices. If oil deposits run out and no new reserves are discovered, then we are truly headed for peak kerosene prices. Although reserves are looking like they will last a while yet.
