Home heating oil is one of the most popular heating sources for homes in the Northeast where over 6 million households are heated by fuel oil. This represents 78% of the entire home heating oil market in the United States.
Home heating oil is also the lifeblood of heating oil marketers. Finding a quality source of premium fuel for furnaces or boilers is key to your business’ success.
Ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel (ULSD) was proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency as a new standard for the sulfur content in on-road diesel fuel sold in the United States since 2006. The regulation applies to all diesel fuel, diesel fuel additives, and distillate fuels blended with diesel for on-road use (such as kerosene). All highway diesel fuel is ultra-low sulfur. Non-road diesel fuel was required to move to 500 ppm sulfur in 2007 and further to ULSD in 2010. Railroad locomotive and marine diesel fuel also moved to 500 ppm sulfur in 2007 and switched to ULSD in 2012. Since December 1, 2014, all highway, non-road, locomotive, and marine diesel fuel produced and imported has been ULSD.
Energy marketers need to be aware of all EPA-related changes and have a quality source of low-sulfur petroleum products.
Dyed diesel is used primarily to identify fuels that are not taxed so that they cannot be used in lieu of the taxed versions of the fuel. The Internal Revenue Service mandates the use of red dye for tax-exempt diesel fuels such as heating oil. The coloring is in sufficient concentration to allow detection even when diluted with “legal” fuel. Detection of red-dyed fuel in the fuel system of an on-road vehicle will incur substantial penalties. Also, the Environmental Protection Agency mandates the use of a red dye to identify high-sulfur fuels for off-road use.
Biofuel refers to a vegetable oil or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, propyl, or ethyl) esters. Biofuel is typically made from domestically produced soybean oil and helps offset the amount of petroleum consumed.
Biofuel can be used alone or blended with conventional fuels such as heating oil and ultra-low sulfur diesel. Biofuel can be used as a heating fuel in domestic and commercial boilers. A mix of heating oil and biofuel can be used in existing furnaces without modification.
As a biofuel supplier, Inland Fuel helps energy marketers understand technological and regulatory changes in the fuel oil business and can supply premium wholesale bioproducts to resellers throughout New England.
Kerosene is a combustible hydrocarbon liquid. It was originally used in lamps but is now used more widely for heating and to power engines. There is essentially no difference between dyed kerosene and kerosene. Dyed fuels are dyed to indicate that they are not taxed and therefore cannot be used instead of the taxed versions of the fuel.
Inland Fuel supplies clear and dyed kerosene to its New England-based customers at its Bridgeport, CT, and Tiverton, RI terminals.
Propane is a versatile liquefied petroleum gas that can be used as a fuel for engines, heating, and power household appliances such as water heaters, stoves, clothing dryers, and barbeque grills. About 90% of U.S. propane is produced domestically.
