Commercial boilers that traditionally run on gas oil can now use clean-burning central heating oil called Furnace Fuel. Reprocessed oil and crude oils are mixed together to produce this fuel.

Furnace Fuel – The Details

  • The Approved British Standard for central heating oil is BS EN 2869, Class D, which Furnace Fuel completely complies with.
  • It is a hay-like colour. So it doesn’t look like gas oil.
  • An engineer doesn’t need to be consulted before you use it as all commercial boilers are able to use Furnace Fuel.
  • Oil tank lids will not be damaged by using this fuel. Other oils with high bio features have been known to cause such problems.

What Are The Benefits?

  • It offers considerable cost savings as standard gas oil is more expensive than Furnace Fuel.
  • Can be used as a direct substitute for gas oil.
  • Your boiler efficiency will be improved as well as lowering your carbon emissions.
  • Hugely reduces the risk of contamination through microbial content.
  • When gas oil starts to reach temperatures below 0°C it will start to deteriorate. However, Furnace Fuel can reach temperatures of -24°C before it will begin to deteriorate.
