    Although most petroleum products can be utilized as fuels, the term “fuel oil,” if used without qualification, may be interpreted differently in various countries. For example, in Europe fuel oil generally is associated with the black, viscous, residual material which remains as the result of refinery distillation of crude oil either alone or in a blend with lighter components, and it is used for steam generation for large, slow-speed diesel engine operation and industrial heating and processing. In the United States, the term “fuel oil” is applied to both the residual type material and the distillate type products such as domestic heating oil, kerosine, and burner fuel oils.
