31st JANUARY 2022

Following HMRC’s announcement ceasing the use of rebated red diesel and red HVO fuel on 1st April this year, we are changing the way we operate our fuel supply.

From the 1st April 2022 rebated red diesel and red HVO will no longer be available for use in our machinery, only white diesel and white HVO must be used.

As this change in legislation is mandatory, we are taking steps to enable a

smooth transition to the new regulations.

Further information can be found at:

Returning Equipment as from 1st March 2022

Please return equipment completely empty. Any red fuel returned in March will be scrapped and charged for. i.e., if a machine is returned containing ¼ of a tank red fuel this will be disposed of, and you will be charged for a full tank.

Should you wish to retain any residual fuel for your own use on site, please speak to your John F Hunt Hire Services contact.

New Hires as from 1st March 2022

We will begin supplying new hires with white diesel as from 1st March 2022. Sites must ensure equipment is only refilled with white fuel. Should machines be filled with red fuel in error, they will be considered contaminated and subject to cleaning and disposal fees.

Equipment Remaining on Hire Through 1st April Deadline

From the 1st April 2022, all equipment will need refuelling with white fuel only.

Any remaining red fuel will be deemed contaminated, disposed of, and charged for.
