We have attempted to answer common questions
Q Why have we started marketing a Premium Gas Oil?
A It appears that the latest off-road vehicles have been developed on European off road diesel – which is closer in quality to our DERV (BS EN 590). UK Gas Oil has lower cetane number and no lubricity spec compared to DERV. Although UK poorer gas oil quality is not new, the latest vehicle technology appears to have been “squeezed” to meet lower emission limits. Such a “squeeze” regularly puts stress on fuel quality – and some of customers have reported that the latest engines can run rough on UK Gas Oil.

A M&W Premium Gas Oil improves pulling power; promotes easier starting, smoother running and better protection; lowers fuel consumption, black smoke and emissions; reduces sludge, fuel contamination and water problems
