Gas oil and diesel oil are primarily a medium distillates distilling at between 180 °C and 380 °C. Includes blending components. Several grades are available depending on uses. Gas/diesel oil includes on-road diesel oil for diesel compression ignition engines of cars and trucks. Gas/diesel oil includes light heating oil for industrial and commercial uses, marine diesel and diesel used in rail traffic, other gas oil including heavy gas oils which distil at between 380 °C and 540 °C and which are used as petrochemical feedstocks. Blended biofuels are excluded.
