Also known as: No. 2 oil, IGO, heating oil, MGO, marine gasoil, furnace oil
Industrial gasoil is a diesel boiling range light product used for non-transportation purposes.
It differs from diesel primarily in not having a cetane limit and also often having a slightly higher end point than diesel. This allows it to contain more of the low-cetane diesel range blend stocks such as LCO.
There are different varieties of industrial gasoils based on specific end uses:
- Home heating oil - Used as a furnace fuel in homes and commercial buildings
- Industrial gasoil - Used as a fuel in industrial furnaces
- Marine gasoil - Used as a fuel in ship boilers
