  515 Leaded Petrol  
  520 Other un-rebated light oil, including leaded petrol  
  521 Furnace fuel (marked/un-marked under marking waiver)

  HEAVY OILS 540 Waste-derived heavy oil used for heating or put to a non-road use
  541 Un-rebated heavy oil (inc. DERV, road fuel extender, or un-marked gas oil for which no marking waiver has been granted) - this formerly included unrebated kerosene, but only up to November 2016 when new tax type codes were introduced for added clarity  
  542 Kerosene to be used as motor fuel off road or in an excepted vehicle  
  546 Unrebated kerosene (includes kerosene on its way to be marked, e.g. for heating, then subsequently netted off)  
  551 Kerosene (marked/un-marked under marking waiver, including heavy oil aviation turbine fuel (AVTUR)) to be used other than as a motor fuel off-road or in an excepted vehicle.  
You may still occasionally see this being used but it has been replaced by two separate TTCs (since November 2016) - namely 600 for fully rebated kerosene, and 601 for fully rebated kerosene to be used as AVTUR jet fuel. Those codes should be used, not this one.
