Fuel marker

Revenue markers are added to:

  • Marked Gas Oil
  • and
  • Marked Kerosene

in order to distinguish between the standard tax rate of Auto Fuel (road diesel) and the reduced tax rates of these products.

The markers added to Marked Gas Oil produce a green colour and the markers added to Marked Kerosene produce a red colour.

It is illegal to use Marked Gas Oil or Marked Kerosene in road vehicles.

Where Revenue Officers suspect or detect the presence of the fuel marker in a road vehicle, it is liable to seizure. The owner and, or driver are liable to prosecution.
