Rix Petroleum is one of the UK’s leading heating oil supplier, supplying heating oils, K+ and AGA fuel for homes across the UK for almost 100 years.

What is kerosene?

Kerosene, commonly referred to as heating oil, is a fossil fuel used for heating purposes.

It derives from the refinement of crude oil and is widely used as heating oil in homes across the UK. Kerosene comes in many guises, such as paraffin, boiler fuel, burning oil, heating oil, and 28 second oil, amongst others!

The ’28 second’ name refers to the test used to ascertain kerosene’s viscosity, measuring the time it takes for 50ml of kerosene to drip into a container. This is the same test behind the ’35 second’ name given to red diesel.

What is K+?

K+ heating oil is a premium heating oil product from Rix Petroleum that helps keep your oil-fired boiler and fuel storage tank clean. It can also help by increasing the reliability, performance, efficiency and lifespan of your heating system. It also ages slower than standard Kerosene, saving you money in the long run.

What is AGA Fuel?

Aga fuel refers to the specific type of fuel, typically liquid or gas, used to power Aga range cookers, which are iconic and traditional cast-iron cookers.

If you have an AGA-style cooker, it’s important that you use the right fuel to keep your appliance in good condition, boosting performance and reducing the risk of maintenance issues.

Our AGA fuel has active ingredients to fight these issues and keep your cooker running at maximum performance for longer. AGA cooker fuel from Rix is designed for use in oil-fired range cookers. It improves the ‘burn quality’ of domestic heating oil (kerosene) when used in range cookers and boilers and/or where vaporising burners are being utilised.
