What is Kerosene?

Kerosene is a combustible oil with low viscosity used by businesses and homes as fuel to generate heat, light and power. Kerosene has many names, although these all refer to the same energy; these names include kerosine, paraffin, heating oil, 28 second, kero, lamp oil, burning oil and boiler fuel.

28-second refers to Kerosene’s viscosity through a specific test of how long it takes 50ml of the oil to drip into a beaker. It also explains how red diesel gets its ’35-second’ name.

Kerosene trades in the $US and fluctuates constantly. You can see the current price at
