The difference between distillate fuels and petroleum-based oils

Distillate fuel is a diverse category that encompasses one of the petroleum fractions obtained through conventional distillation processes. This liquid fuel is typically derived from crude petroleum and includes diesel fuels and fuel oils. It plays a crucial role as an energy source for internal-combustion vehicles equipped with either mechanical or electric transmissions. Additionally, it finds application in automobiles, locomotives, agricultural machinery, space heaters, and power generators.
