LSFO (Low Sulphur Fuel Oil) - Fuel oil with a sulphur content of between 0.5% and 1.0%.

VLSFO (Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil) - Fuel oil with a sulfur content of less than or equal to 0.5%.

ULSFO (Ultra-Low Sulphur Fuel Oil) - Fuel oil with a sulphur content of less than or equal to 0.1%.

MGO (Marine Gas Oil) - Made from distillate only, MGO closely resembles diesel fuel used by trucks.

ADF (Automotive Diesel Fuel) - The basic diesel fuel used in land vehicles.

Unleaded Gasoline - Also known as benzene, unleaded gasoline is used as fuel for internal combustion engines.

Kerosene - Known as paraffin in the UK, kerosene is used for heating, lighting, cooking, and for transportation.
