Kerosene or Gas Oil? How to tell

Have you moved into a house and wondered what type of heating oil you are supposed to put in the tank? Luckily the answer is relatively straightforward. You usually have a choice between two products: Kerosene or Gas Oil.


The number of different names for Kerosene means often times it can be confusing trying to figure out the exact oil type you need. Kerosene for example is also known as Jet A1 Kero, Standard Kero, 28 second oil and more generically, just “Home Heating Oil”. The vast majority of modern home heating systems use Kerosene to fire their oil boiler.
