D6 Virgin Fuel Oil, also known as Residual Fuel Oil, is a high-viscosity fuel that requires pre-heating to temperatures between 104 ºC to 127 ºC (220 ºF – 260 ºF) before use. It is primarily composed of long-chain hydrocarbons like alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatics. D6 is mostly used in generators and large ships or power plants, as it’s unsuitable for smaller engines or boats due to its pre-heating requirement and high viscosity.
