Red diesel failure

Can anyone supply information of any source regarding the unfortunate situation of red diesel in relation to small commercial operators? By that I mean, one RIB, passenger, owner operators?

Any commercial use shoudln't be a problem - if you can't use red then you can still claim the duty back I would have thought.

Interesting comment in that article Pete

"It also emerged from the meeting that the Government would take a 'gently-gently' approach to enforcement if the switch to white diesel was made."

Believe that when I see it!!!

The Treasury also admitted that policing a ban on red diesel would be next to impossible on the south coast, since the dyed fuel is available in the Channel Islands.
Oh goody.

Diesel

Good One SimmnsO,

Also same in Ireland.... and given that we can openly cross border, you can come over here and top up with Red Diesel legally. That will thus taint any white Diesel in your tanks as I believe the Red Diesel dye is strong.

We can use Agri Diesel also which i think is Green, not sure...
