Can I use HVO fuel?
HVO fuel is used within a variety of industries and sectors as an alternative to diesel and kerosene. This means you can find it used in everything from generators, to industrial vehicles, agricultural machinery, commercial boilers, boats and other marine vessels.
HVO fuel has also been successfully trialled for use as drop in alternative to kerosene home heating oil. And whilst the use of HVO fuel for domestic home heating purposes isn’t as widespread as it is commercially, more households may be legislated to make the switch.
For the most part, other than a nozzle change, households shouldn’t have to change or convert their boilers to run on HVO, but it’s worth checking with you heating engineer as some older models aren’t compatible with this future fuel and may need to be upgraded.
