Heating oil and diesel fuel are closely related products called distillates. The main difference between the two fuels is that heating oil may contain a greater amount of sulfur than diesel fuel. This fact was generally the case in the past, but it is a distinction that is becoming less useful. All diesel fuel now sold in the United States must have a sulfur content of no more than 15 parts per million.
