Dunbar Harbour stocks red diesel for the fishing fleet, yachts and visiting boats. The red has a lesser duty rate for commercial users (mainly farmers and fishers) and thus is cheaper than white diesel. There is now a current HMRC consultation stage regarding when/whether the European regs. should be introduced.

The UK has so far avoided introducing this change for private users but in future it will particularly affect 'private pleasure craft users who will be required to use unmarked white diesel' when visiting the Continent.

Yacht skippers, you need to be aware!
