Are You Ready For The Red Diesel Law Changes?

The UK government has announced that from 1st April 2022, it will become illegal to use red diesel and rebated biodiesel for many commercial applications, except for agriculture (as well as horticulture, forestry and fish farming), rail and non-commercial heating. This covers the majority of users in the construction industry and will affect all diesel-powered items supplied through WowNow Hire and our partners.
