Availability of Kerosene in France7 Replies
On the subject of fuel oil for UK sourced boilers and Aga's etc. I have established that Kerosene (or 28 second oil as it is still widely known) isn't available here from the bulk suppliers. However digging a little on the net yesterday I became intrigued by the Pétrole (Lampant)/Combustible de Chauffage product (sometimes also appears as CLAMC) which is everywhere in bidons of 20lts and available at forecourt pumps in some supermarkets. It translates apparently as parafin (possibly a misnomer) or kerosene. It certainly looks like it might be '28 second oil' in disguise, has anyone got to the bottom of the subject? If it is the same or very similar it must be available in bulk from somewhere for Leclerc to offer it at their pump.
