Marine Gas Oil and Fuel Delivery

What is Bunker Fuel?

The term “bunker fuel” refers to the compartment within a boat or ship where gasoline is stored. Marine Gas Oil is used to power the motors of maritime boats. Bunkers were used in the era of steamships, which were propelled by coal. Ships now feature fuel tanks instead of coal bunkers, but they are still referred to as bunkers. Since the term does not specify the sort of fuel the watercraft uses, the fuel type may vary depending on the particular vessel.

Types of Bunker Fuel

  • Marine Gas Oil (MGO)
  • Marine Diesel Oil (MDO)
  • Intermediate Fuel Oil (IFO)
  • Marine Fuel Oil (MFO)
  • Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO)

Marine Gas Oil is Created from Distillates

Marine gas oil is the name given to marine fuels manufactured only from distillates. Distillates refer to all of the components of crude oil that evaporate during fractional distillation. They are later condensed from the gas phase into liquid fractions. To make marine gas oil, a number of distillates are mixed together. Unlike heavy fuel oil, marine gas oil does not require heating while being stored.

Type of Bunker Fuel Used by Ships on High Seas

In the past heavy fuel oil was typically used by bigger ships. But after the new regulations set in 2020, all shipowners were forced to switch to marine gas oil. It is a lower sulphur distillate fuel. 123 Oil has been at the heart of the industry for 30 years. We are marine gas oil suppliers working all across the UK. Offering lower marine gas oil prices than our competitors.

Marine Gas Oil with a Low Sulphur Content

Despite having a lower maximum Sulphur content than HFO, marine gas oil is produced with a distinct Sulphur content. Low Sulfur marine gas oil has approximately 0.10 m/m Sulphur level. It is often referred to as LSMGO. This marine gas oil has been used at ports which have Sulphur emission restrictions.

Characteristics of Marine Gas Oil

Marine gas oil is used by ship’s engines and high-speed auxiliary units. Auxiliary units are also known as auxiliary motors. These motors are often installed on fishing boats, tugboats, and small ferries. Some of the features of marine gas oil are as follows:

  • Marine gas oil has a low viscosity.
  • MGO is put into the engine at temperatures of 20°C.
  • Marine gas oil is based on lighter distillates.
  • MGO differs from heavy fuel oil.
  • Marine gas oil has a lower density.
  • It does not have to be heated during storage.
  • It can be used in four-stroke machines.
  • It has a higher heat value than HFO.
  • Marine gas oil has lower lubricating properties.

Burning Marine Gas Oil in a 4-stroke Engine

The diesel generators installed on ships today utilise both residual and distillate fuel. There are much fewer valve seat deposits when using distillate fuel. This reduces the amount of combustion byproducts in marine gas oil. The amount of residual oil in the ship’s 4-stroke marine engine determines how well it performs. Most 4-stroke engines have water-cooled injection nozzles installed to reduce the injector tip temperature. While using the distillate fuel, the nozzle cooling system will further reduce its temperature. The additional cooling provided by the water will overcool the nozzle. This allows the combustion gas temperature to fall below the Sulphur acid dew point. To avoid this, always turn off the nozzle cooling when distillate marine fuel oil is operating. The gasoline pump on most four-stroke engines has a lubricating sealant. The flow of distillate fuel is sealed by this oil which minimises leakage.
