Red diesel is used in multiple industries, however usage is typically more prominent in agriculture and construction. The diesel contains a red dye to identify illegal usage in on-road vehicles. Red diesel is cheaper than white diesel due to lower fuel tax duty against the grade, although not entirely exempt, it is heavily rebated.
