Typically used in domestic heating systems, kerosene is considered by many to be an essential fuel. At EGS Fuels, we have been delivering heating oil to homes and businesses since 1993, and we are experts in the safe transport and stable storable of this flammable heating oil.
Our round-the-clock service allows us to deliver kerosene to customers across Manchester and Cheshire, seven days a week, no matter where you are based. In fact, we have purpose built mini tankers that can get to the most difficult parts of the North West, so that our customers are never left out in the cold.
What is kerosene?
Sometimes called heating oil or paraffin wax, kerosene is used across the world to power everything from camping stoves, to jet engines. It is a clear fuel which is derived from petroleum, and it is a more stable and less flammable alternative to gasoline and other popular fuels.
In the Victorian era, before electricity was invented, paraffin wax was widely used in lamps, stoves, and heating devices; and it is still highly valued for its affordable price point, ease of access, and clean burn. In fact, kerosene is currently being used as a heating oil in more than a million UK households.
FUN FACT – In 1880, at the peak of its popularity, almost two of every five New York City fires were caused by defective kerosene lamps.
Who needs kerosene?
Kerosene has a huge variety of uses, and therefore a hugely diverse client base. The highest quality kerosene is used as jet fuel, and bought in bulk by suppliers in the aviation industry. Lower grade kerosene is more suitable for domestic use, where it is added to you oil tank and distributed through the pipes to provide central heating.
Kerosene is usually cheaper than the next most popular alternative – gas oil – as it is a more efficient type of fuel, with a lower burning point and cleaner emissions. However, it is vital that any kerosene delivery is handled with expert precision in order to avoid any dangerous spillages which may lead to environmental damage. This is why we decided to create our own kerosene mini tankers at ESG Fuels, to ensure that our customers get the safest products, delivered responsibly and efficiently to all of our clients in the North West.
