|Gas/Diesel Oil (Distillate Fuel Oil)|
|Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)European Commission - EurostatGas/diesel oil is primarily a medium distillate distilling between 180oC and 380oC. Several grades are available depending on uses: transport diesel, heating and other gasoil.
This category includes bleding components.International Energy Agency (IEA)Gas/diesel oil is primarily a medium distillate distilling between 180oC and 380oC. Several grades are available depending on uses: transport diesel, heating and other gasoil.
This category includes blending components.International Energy Forum Secretariat (IEFS)Gas/diesel oil is a lighter fuel oil distilled off during the refining process and used primarily for heating, automotive purposes in diesel engines and for power generation.
Two main types are distinguished by their uses:
Transport diesel: Fuel used for internal combustion in on-road diesel engines, cars and trucks etc., usually of low sulphur content.
Heating Oil and Other Gasoil: This is a distillate fuel oil used mainly in stationary or marine diesel engines. It includes light heating oil which is used for residential or commercial space heating, or in industrial plants. It also includes marine diesel which is
used for barge and boat engines and other heavier gas oils which may be used as petrochemical feed stocks.
Include also all gas/diesel oil which is used as international marine bunker fuel.Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE)Liquid fuels obtained from atmospheric distilling of oil from 200 to 380 degrees Celsius, are heavier than kerosene and are utilized in diesel engines and other compression–ignition engines.
Diesel Oil consists of up to three different petroleum derivatives: motor diesel (used for highway vehicles), industrial diesel (boilers and furnaces), and gas oil that is a lighter fraction (used for tractors and farm machinery). The names often change according to the country.United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)Gas/diesel oil is primarily a medium distillate distilling between 180oC and 380oC. Several grades are available depending on uses: transport diesel, heating and other gasoil.
This category includes blending components.UNSD Energy Statistics SectionHeavy oils distilling between 200oC and 380oC, but distilling less than 65% in volume at 250oC, including losses, and 85% or more at 350oC. Its flash point is always above 50oC and its specific gravity is higher than 0.82. Heavy oils obtained by blending are grouped together with gas oils on the condition that their kinematic viscosity does not exceed 27.5 cSt at 38oC. Also included are middle distillates intended for the petrochemical industry.
Gas-diesel oils are used as a fuel for internal combustion in diesel engines, as a burner fuel in heating installations, such as furnaces, and for enriching water gas to increase its luminosity.
Other names for this product are diesel fuel, diesel oil, gas oil and solar oil.
