Gasoil

Gas oil (also popularly known as red diesel) is the same fuel as normal road diesel but with one difference. Gas oil comes from crude oil. The crude oil that is pumped out of the ground is a black liquid, known as petroleum. Depending on the way that the crude oil is distilled, a variety of fuels can be made. Please see the illustration below for a more detailed view of how gas oil and different fuels are made from crude oil.
