Since March 31st 2011, all green diesel supplied in Ireland for use in all non road mobile machinery is primarily used in the agricultural and commercial sectors i.e. tractors, harvesters, diggers, forklifts etc must be sulphur free gas oil (SFGO) which contains 10 parts per million of sulphur (10 ppm). This EU directive, introduced in January 2011, is designed to lower emissions and reduce the rate of sulphur and carbon deposits created by non road machinery.

Supplying the Highest Grade SFGO
- Glen Fuels supplies SFGO which is an eco-friendly gas oil with a sulphur level of 10 parts per million.
- SFGO is used for non-road mobile machinery (NRMM), such as tractors, excavators, quarrying equipment, etc.
SFGO is the Law
It is now illegal to supply or use marked gas oil (1000 ppm) in non road mobile machinery. To do so will lead to significant fines and penalties to the user.
It is necessary to use SFGO (10 ppm) in all new machinery as previously used marked gas oil (1000 ppm) can have an adverse effect on machinery causing issues such as blocked filters BUT will most definitely negate any warranty queries that may occur with new machinery.
It is also necessary to note that storage of SFGO will necessitate comprehensive housekeeping of the storage area. SFGO may contain an element of bio diesel (up to 7%).
This may not always be the case as SFGO may just contain low sulphur diesel only. If there is biodiesel present (FAME – gas oil containing biodiesel) it will absorb water from condensation that occurs within storage tanks (and machinery tanks) as fuel levels in the tank fall. This creates ideal conditions for the growth of micro bacteria which will create a sludge type substance at the bottom of the tank. The micro bacteria live in the water and feed on the oil. As the bacteria thrives so too will the presence of sludge. Older tanks can also contribute to the promotion of micro cultures as the UV barrier breaks down creating a black skin/ film on the inner lining of the tank wall. This sludge will inevitably lead to blocked filters if it gets into the tank fuel line. Regular cleaning of the tank, removal of water and the use of an anti bacterial toxin is recommended every two or three years.
