What is paraffin?

Paraffin is a duty rebated fuel and carries lower duty than road fuels. Paraffin can be used for power generators, standby generators, plant and machinery and for industrial heating or home heating.


Paraffin usage is monitored by Customs and Excise and it is paramount that paraffin is not used in automotive cars or HGV lorries. If Paraffin is found to be used in an inappropriate manner Customs and Excise will almost certainly take action against the offender.
