A brief guide to Kerosene
What is kerosene?
Kerosene is a combustible hydrocarbon oil which is used as a heating fuel in domestic and commercial premises. Kerosene has a plethora of uses, including heating, cleaning and lighting. The term ‘kerosene’ was trademarked by the North American Gas Light Company in 1854. This meant they were the only firm allowed to use the term commercially. It has since been given a general trademark and can be used by anybody.
What is kerosene used for?
Kerosene is used for a wide range of applications including lighting, heating, cleaning and entertainment. In the UK, kerosene is primarily used as home heating oil and also as heating oil in commercial premises requiring low-sulphur burning oil. Its clean-burn characteristics uphold a high heat production at cheaper prices. This makes it perfect for heating applications.
Facts about kerosene:
✔ It is widely known as heating oil and paraffin in the UK.

✔ To avoid being confused with similar fuels and oils, you will normally see kerosene fuel stored in a blue container.
