WP Marine supplies Marine Gas Oil that is virtually sulphur free (below 10mg of sulphur per kilogram), meeting EU Directive 2009/30/EC which came into effect on January 1st 2011.
Orders placed before 10.30am are normally delivered the next working day. When the delivery is made the driver will normally bring with him:
Advanced Marine Gas Oil contains an enzyme fuel treatment designed to combat diesel bug and improve fuel efficiency.
The Sulphur Free Gas Oil regulations make it an offence to sell Red Diesel with more than 10ppm (previously 1,000ppm) of sulphur for use in inland waterway craft and recreational craft that do not go to sea.
Some fuel suppliers offer red-dyed road fuel for use in marine craft. Road fuel contains up to 7% FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester or Biodiesel) which can cause problems in some, particularly older, engines and increase the risk of biological contamination (‘Diesel Bug’).
Esso Petroleum is investing in new equipment at Fawley Oil Refinery to produce FAME-free marine Gas Oil.
Until then its dyed road diesel will be used to meet the legislation but unlike other suppliers, Esso guarantees that its product will only contain a maximum of 2% FAME, to reduce contamination risk.
WP Marine is helping marine Red Diesel users by offering Advanced Marine Gas Oil, containing a widely-used enzyme designed to cut contamination, overcome Diesel Bug (irrespective of FAME content) and improve fuel consumption.
