Tables: table L- oils we control because they are not marked
The possibility that marking might be an appropriate control can also be considered.

|AVTUR (aviation turbine fuel) or JET A1 or any military jet fuel and their variations for helicopters (AVCAT, amongst others)||Aviation turbine fuel for jet engines||To maintain purity of the fuel for technical and for safety reasons||Hydrocarbon Oil Marking Regulations, 2002 Section 6||AVTUR and its variants will run diesel engines. See Notice 179A (Traders who supply AVTUR are required to register under the RDCO scheme).|
|Marine Gas Oil||Sea going vessels||It is accepted that the fuel is effectively going for export by leaving the UK - we encourage marking but there is no requirement to do so||Some is marked. Fuel that is re-landed should be marked, see Notice 263. (The control of Marine Fuels is under review).|
|Solvents, hydraulic fluids, trans-former oils, and oils for other industrial purposes, where they are incorporated into ‘other’ goods such as paints.||Tied Oils or oils ‘put to certain use’ being purposes other than for road fuel or heating fuel use.||It is accepted that is the oil is being incorporated into other products, and markers may have a detrimental effect on the end product||Hydrocarbon Oil Duties Act 1979, Section 9||Tied OIL traders have to be approved - see Notice 184A. The disposal of waste Tied oil is also controlled.|
|Fuel oil or furnace fuel||Dark Oil used to be used to fuel marine oil-fired boilers, but this fuel is now rarely burnt for emission reasons.||Dark oil is often old or impure oil that should not be used as ‘rebated’ oil because its colour impedes the identification of fiscal dyes||Prohibited for sale as vehicle fuel by the Hydrocarbon Oil Marking Regulations 2002, Section 17|
