Supporting your business with the changes to Gas Oil usage

Craggs Energy has been supplying Red Diesel (Gas Oil) to businesses for 10 years, and we are here to support your business with the changes to Red Diesel usage to ensure you are ready for April 2022.


As part of the government’s commitment to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050 it was announced that as of the 1st of April 2022, the eligibility to use Red Diesel will be removed for many businesses and sectors. This change is being introduced in part to help promote the use of Green Fuels instead of Fossil Fuels.

What do you need to do?

If you are no longer permitted to use Red Diesel, it’s important to run down your existing stocks in advance of the deadline.

Uplift Excess Fuel Stock

Clean Your Fuel Tank

Switch to Green (HVO) Fuel

If you have a high stock level, a fuel uplift service is available for customers that are looking to remove redundant Gas Oil to make way for White Diesel or a Green Fuel replacement. If you have more than 500 litres of fuel that you no longer require, we can come to your site and uplift it from your tank using our fully certified fuel uplift service. With a now empty fuel tank it may be advisable to undertake a tank clean to remove any harmful sludge, water or particulate that may have gathered during your tanks life time. Our UK wide team of tank cleaning engineers can provide this service either at the same time as a fuel uplift or as a stand alone service. Green D+ HVO fuel is one of the cleanest fuels on the market that eliminates up to 90% of net CO2 emissions. As a paraffinic EN15940 renewable fuel, GreenD+ HVO can be used as a drop-in alternative to fossil diesel, it’s cleaner, its FAME free and there’s no need to modify existing infrastructure – you can simply top up and go.
