FAME free fuel
Where possible, we endeavor to always stock FAME free fuel.
The EU Directive 2009/30/EC requires that, from 1st January 2011, all gas oil marketed for use in canal boats must contain no more than 10 milligrams of sulphur per kilogram of fuel (virtually ‘sulphur free’). A concern is that some suppliers will provide ‘road diesel’ with a red marker dye.
This type of fuel can contain up to 7% biodiesel or FAME (fatty acid methyl ester) which can
cause detrimental side effects in storage and when used in boats.
FAME free fuel may be more expensive to purchase initially but will help avoid possible costly side effects to your boats fuel systems in the longer term.
What are the benefits?
– Less harmful emissions
– Reduce risk of biological contamination or diesel bug in your fuel systems
