What is Kerosene?
Kerosene is a popular fuel for heating domestic and commercial properties. It is a straw coloured fuel which is light in texture and has a low flash point making it one of the safer fuels to store. Other benefits also include a low waxing point meaning it stays fluid in cold temperatures where other fuels will thicken "wax-up".

Who uses Kerosene?
Kerosene is used by over 1.5 million UK homes who are off the main gas grid as an alternative fuel to heat the house and hot water. It is usually stored outside in a heating oil tank and is topped up by fuel oil suppliers like us. WCF Fuels North West supply domestic properties across Lancashire and South Cumbria with a range of kerosene products including Premium Kerosene for boilers or Range style cookers.
What is Premium Kerosene?
WCF Fuels can offer all our customers the option of upgrading to one of our Premium Heating oils. Keromax is designed to help improve the efficiency of all oil-burning boilers while keeping injectors and burners cleaner thanks to the additive which is added to the fuel during delivery. Agamax works in the same way but has been developed for Aga style range cookers. More information can be found here.
