What is kerosene?

Kerosene, also known as heating oil, 28-second oil, paraffin or kero, is a fast-burning and easily ignitable hydrocarbon fluid used in heating systems. The oil has a range of commercial uses and has a lower viscosity, lower freezing point and higher flash point than red diesel, making it a reliable fuel for many industries.

The term ‘kerosene’ was first 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, heating oil or 28-second 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) is generally a clear, yellow shade.

What is kerosene used for?

Kerosene oil is versatile and is popular in many industries such as aviation, agriculture and commercial sectors, as well as for home heating and industrial applications that require low sulphur fuel. Its clean-burning characteristics maintain a high heat output at lower costs, which makes it ideal for your central heating needs.

Facts about kerosene (heating oil)

  • Also widely known as home heating oil
  • A liquid mixture of chemicals created from the distillation of crude oil
  • Used to power jet-engine aircraft
  • Also used as a cleaning solution
  • Usually stored in a blue or blue labelled barrel, drum or container
  • Used throughout the UK in lanterns as a source of lighting fuel before electricity

What are current kerosene prices?

Kerosene prices follow the trend of crude oil prices. So, when the price per barrel of crude oil is stable, the price of kerosene is also stable. The required kerosene quantity and delivery location can also affect the cost of kerosene, which means we cannot offer fixed kerosene pricing online.

Generally, kerosene prices peak during the winter as demand rises. We always recommend purchasing heating oil ahead of the busy winter period to help keep costs low.

At Speedy Fuels, we have large buying power which gives us the ability to pass on these savings onto our customers. Get in touch today for a quick and competitive kerosene quote.
