What is Standard Kerosene & What Is It Used For?

Kerosene heating oil was once the most used energy source for central heating and lighting. However, due to the rise of gas oil and electricity, off-grid homeowners now use kerosene to power their oil-fired domestic heating systems. Additionally, kerosene serves as a fuel source for jet engines and oil lamps.

Kerosene, also known as 28-second oil, burns faster and hotter than other fuel sources. Therefore, kerosene is an efficient choice for homeowners. What’s more, kerosene is less expensive to produce than other fuels and also produces fewer fumes. 

We refer to kerosene as standard kerosene because we now also offer a premium alternative alongside it.
