Until this year we could buy red diesel for both heating and engines in Belgium. It works fine. Now we have to buy white diesel and pay road tax. My engine works fine on white, but the heater seems to object. Probably a coincidental failure. Snag with having red just for heating on a boat over here is you have difficulty proving it can't be used in the engine. The local customs and excise in Netherlands are going for the Brits, as they still get red until 2008. Keep your receipts is the motto, to prove it was bought in Britain.
