EU sulfur rules won’t affect your Aga

December 16th, 2009

There have been some reports that EU rules on sulfur content of kerosene fuel will cause problems with oil-fired Agas. Some have even interpreted this as an effort by the EU to get rid of Agas.

The UK Petroleum Industry Association tells us ” There is no obvious reason for the new 0.1% sulphur limit [to] cause coking in AGAs. AGAs have been running in the UK with kerosene below the new sulphur limits for years”. If you have specific examples of problems, the best thing to do is to contact your fuel supplier, as the UKPIA will be re-examining the UK standard early next year, and would appreciate any feedback. As far as using Agas are concerned, the choice of cooking method is a personal choice and neither the European Commission nor the EU’s decision makers are interested in dictating to people about that choice.
