There is an old saying'' If you cannot stand the heat, then get out of the Kitchen ''. Well I think that applies to you. If you cant hack it then bugger off.
Having said all that I am in the same camp as the others and would prefer you to stay.

"Diesel is a Commercial Term as is Hoover for Vacuum Cleaner ....... Correct term is Gasoil - No I will not argue this - I state this absolute."
Please stay. But I'm sure I read somewhere recently...
"Fuel Blender - Diesels, Gasolines, LPG's Fuel Oils..."Next time, it'll all be different.

I believe the name Diesel comes from the guy who invented the oil engine, Rudolf Diesel. just like Hoover, but he invented Dams. I'll get my coat. ;-)

DERV, Gasoil, Diesel ...
These terms have come from historic items ................
For some reason UK became so insistent on terminology ... gasoil became the term for farm / industrial ... and has generally become the lower Cetane fuel in the lower 40's. Diesel is kept in UK terminology for the higher 40's / low 50's cetane you buy for road cars .......... IT's the same ****E subject to sulphur levels ! but blended differently and if it doesn't quite meet spec - additives or spirits are added to boost it.
DERV ......... now there is argument over this - but this is a term derived from a Military specification .... they were writing up specs for all fuels .... whether it be for land, air or sea ...... and the term goes back to war-time ... the word Diesel has no relevance .... it could as easily be called GERV .... ALL 'diesel' is gasoil .................
Question > Any Shipping Co. people on here ? carried a gasoil cargo recently ? Any idea on it's quality ? 0.1, 10ppm, 50ppm, 35ppm Sulphur ????? What do you think you carry it for ?
I could go on and on about this ......... TBH - my post was frustration at trying to help and feeling I've wasted time.
Not my problem, my toys are still in pram - I have plenty of work with Major Oil Co's blending their fuels for distribution into various markets ... I also superintend many cargoes from other blenders / suppliers ....
Many thanks for support posts ....
