Automotive Gas Oil, or AGO, is the name given to fuel intended for use in road vehicles (trucks, buses, vans and cars) powered by diesel engines. AGO is used in two main types of vehicle:
Heavy-duty vehicles, such as trucks and buses, Light-duty vehicles, such as vans and passenger cars
Diesel engines are widely used in heavy-duty vehicles. Such vehicles are frequently operated in fleets and are re-fuelled centrally with fuel delivered direct from the supplier. In the light-duty vehiclesector, recent advances in engine design now also allow light-duty diesel engines to compete with gasoline engines on performance grounds.
Lightduty vehicles are generally re-fuelled through retailoutlets. Although the emphasis differs, in both sectors the customers will be generally looking for fuel that provides economy, power, reliability and environmental acceptability.
