C2-grade fuel oil, also known as C2 kerosene and regular kerosene, is more widely available than C1 kerosene. It is widely used in heating applications and industrial processes that require low-sulphur-content fuel. Our C2 kerosene strictly meets the requirements of BS 2869 standards and is supplied all across the UK at competitive prices.

Below is the table that describes the chemical and physical specifications of C2-grade fuel oil.

You can learn more about these standards in our fuel specification guide.
