What is Kerosene Home Heating Oil? Kerosene fuel explained

What is Kerosene fuel?

Kerosene is a popular fuel with a range of uses and a long history around the world.

Many people might know it better as Home Heating Oil Paraffin, or sometimes ’28 second oil’, and it is something we’ve used for centuries to heat, power and light our homes. Its name derives from the word ‘Keros’, which means ‘wax’ in Greek as when first produced, a wax-like substance occurred from the distillation process.

What is Kerosene fuel used for now?

Nowadays, Kerosene oil is versatile and has applications both as a home heating oil and commercially as fuel. Its uses range from the humble gas lamp up to aeroplane engines and even rockets. The distillation of Kerosene has been happening since as early as the 9th century, and we still use it today. It’s still the most used fuel in Northern Ireland and a popular choice for heating homes.

Home Heating Oil is a low-cost oil, typically cheaper than gas, and Gilmore Fuel Oils can provide the most affordable oil in Coleraine today.

Are Kerosene and Jet fuel the same?

Jet fuel is essentially a highly refined Kerosene, having a heavier distillate used for domestic home heating oil and commercial uses. In its lighter form, Kerosene is suitable for things like lanterns, BBQ lighter fuel or even as a cleaning liquid for bike chains.

Can Kerosene be used in petrol engines?

Kerosene is a Paraffin which means that it’s less volatile than petrol and can’t usually ignite at air temperature. Therefore, the petrol-paraffin engine starts by using petrol and when the engine has gained the correct operating temperature, the engine switches to Paraffin.

How is Kerosene Made?

Kerosene fuel comes from fossil fuels like many other regularly used petroleum fuels, such as Diesel and Petrol. Fractional distillation uses heat to separate crude oil into functional oil and gas components, including, of course, Home Heating Oil.

When refined, it can be stored readily in tanks to be delivered where it is needed.

Advantages of using Kerosene Oil

The benefits of Kerosene are widespread. The ease with which it can combust – or burn – makes it an obvious choice as a source of energy, whether that’s generating heat in a domestic heater or as a critical component in jet fuel


  • Kerosene oil can be considered a safe fuel for home use. There is a far lower risk of carbon monoxide being produced as a side product when burning compared to other fuels, and burning Kerosene is less likely to cause a buildup of carbon and soot.
  • It is cheaper than gas – the price of Home Heating Oil oil is lower as it’s economical to produce. Not only is it more affordable, but it releases more heat per unit volume of Kerosene than other fuels such as gasoline.
  • Kerosene oil is environmentally friendly. It produces fewer fumes in its paraffin form compared to coal and wood.
  • You might also wonder how long does Home Heating Oil fuel last? Kerosene’s molecular stability equally makes it a lower-risk choice as it can be stored quickly and safely, even at low or freezing temperatures. It has a long shelf life of between 2-5 years when stored correctly.
