Fuel oil is any liquid petroleum product obtained from crude oil as a distillate or residue. Fuel oil is burnt in a furnace or boiler for the generation of heat or used in an engine for the generation of power.

Fuel Oil is differentiated into various classes based on their molecular composition. The oil is used in a stricter sense to refer only to the heaviest commercial fuel that can be obtained from crude oil, heavier than gasoline and naphtha.

In general, fuel oil is used in vehicles, ships and power generators. A barrel of crude can yield about 25-75% of fuel oil.
