What Makes Marine Fuels Different?

If you’re new to the boating world, it might surprise you that marine fuels are quite different from traditional petrol and diesel that you would use to fuel your road vehicles.

There are a number of reasons for this, with the main one being the environment that the fuel is stored in. Unlike the dry atmosphere of a domestic or commercial vehicle, boat engines are often damp and sometimes wet places. Because of this, it’s important that the fuel you are using in your boat is adapted to work efficiently in the event of water getting into the tank. Here at City Oil, we provide top-quality marine diesel and marine heating oil to keep your marine vessel working efficiently in any environment.

What Exactly is Marine Diesel?

Marine Diesel is designed to sit in your vessel’s fuel tank for longer than a traditional motor vehicle and is also better adapted to wet and damp conditions than traditional motor fuel. Marine Diesel is created using a blend of heavy fuel oil and gasoil, meaning that it is far better suited to being stored in the tank of a boat or marine vessel for both functionality and safety reasons. By investing in high-quality marine diesel, you can rest assured that your boat can remain running smoothly while also ensuring the safety and longevity of your boat’s engine. If one was to use regular petrol or diesel in the running of their marine vessel, they could risk damaging the engine or in worst-case scenario, causing a fire or explosion on the boat.
