A petroleum distillate intermediate between kerosene and light lubricating oil, used as a fuel for high-speed diesel engines and as burner fuel in heating installations.

The residue from crude petroleum after distilling out light and intermediate fractions.

normalisé par un organisme national ou international
Distillat du pétrole obtenu après le kérosène (point d'éclair = 75,6 °C) utilisé pour la carburation du gaz à l'eau et pour l'alimentation des moteurs diesel fixes ou mobiles.

Distillat ayant un intervalle de distillation compris entre ceux du pétrole lampant et des huiles lubrifiantes; il est utilisé pour la production de chaleur et d'énergie.

Notes :
« Gazole », adopté par le Gaz de France, est un terme dont Albert Dauzat souhaite la généralisation.

((...)) La teneur en soufre du gazole utilisée comme combustible dans les moteurs doit être inférieure à 0,7 % en masse ((...)). Le gazole est utilisé essentiellement comme combustible (et non carburant) dans les moteurs diesel. Soumis au craquage on en tire de l'essence. Il peut aussi servir à produire un gaz destiné à enrichir le gaz de distillation de la houille.
