Diesel EN 590

Diesel fuel is derived from crude oil. It is a mixture of hydrogen and carbon molecules. It is developed for engines that provide energy for power, flow readily in cold temperature, provide low emission, provide good fuel economy, and allow easy start-up. Power generators are run by diesel fuel. The fuel also runs diesel-powered vehicles, such as ships, buses, or trucks. Diesel engines of these types of vehicles are internal combustion engines.

The European refineries produce two types of diesel, for European market with 6.9% bio additive and for external clients without bio additive. Please see below both specifications for Eurodiesel and Standard D1.
