HC Deb 27 March 1945 vol 409 c1327W
Mr. E. Granville

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what quality of fuel oil is supplied for tractors; and if he can give an assurance that it is the best that can be supplied, in view of the fact that the use of poor quality oil results in deterioration of the tractor and the more constant need of reconditioning.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

The oil supplied for tractors is Pool vaporising oil. The fuel is of good quality. A slight change in the specification was made two years ago to meet the supply arrangements necessitated by war conditions, but this did not materially affect the quality of the fuel. The consumption of this fuel has greatly increased during the war and the complaints about quality have been negligible.
