Who can legally use red diesel?

Gas oil is minimally taxed and its use is strictly confined to off-road, untaxed vehicles such as tractors and diggers as well as horticultural equipment and agricultural machinery.

This particular diesel fuel is dyed red for easy identification by HMRC inspectors, and anyone found to be using red-dyed diesel in a road-going vehicle is liable for prosecution.

Whilst most know that the use of red diesel in road going vehicles is prohibited by law, the rules have now changed to further restrict access to gas oil.

From the 1st of April 2022 the number of industries with access to red diesel was drastically reduced by the UK government, in an an attempt to encourage businesses to switch to cleaner, more environmentally-friendly fuels.

The industries, sectors and use cases that lost access to rebated red diesel include:

  • Commercial generators
  • Commercial heating
  • Construction
  • Haulage
  • Leisure
  • Logistics
  • Manufacturing
  • Mining
  • Quarrying
  • Plant hire
  • Road maintenance
  • Waste management
