Motor fuels; deliveries by petajoule, weight and volume


This table provides information on deliveries of motor fuels for transport and other customers in the Netherlands. Deliveries are either for consumption in the Netherlands and international road transport, which is called final consumption, or for international sea and air transport, which is traditionally called bunkering.

The table gives figure for all modes of transport and Agricultural and mobile equipment. Figures for relevant motor fuels are given by transport category. Pure biofuels for road transport are not included in this table. Blended biofuels are included in the deliveries of motor gasoline and transport diesel. Biofuels are products produced from agricultural crops.

Deliveries of motor fuels are expressed by energy (petajoules) and physical units (million kg or million kWh). Deliveries for road transport are also published in volume (million litres). This table includes figures (in petajoules) on total transport, total road transport, total water transport, total air transport and total rail transport. This is not possible for physical units, due to different units (e.g. kg and kWh) are not countable.

Since 2013, low-duty red diesel no longer sold. The customers of these red diesel, such as construction and agriculture, have since been obliged to fill the high-duty diesel also consumed by road transport. Until August 2016 was a month made a model-based estimate of the share of road transport in the use of diesel. This model-based estimation is no longer considered responsible for determining monthly figures. The difference in consumption of diesel between road transport and other consumers in the tables by month is therefore lapsed. On an annual basis, the difference in consumption of diesel between road transport and other consumers will be published in the following table: 'Energy balance sheet; supply and consumption, sector'.

Data available from:
From 1946.

Status of the figures:
All figures from 1946 to December 2017 are definite.
Figures from January 2018 onwards are provisional.

Changes as of 27 July 2020:
Provisional figures of May 2020 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures: in the third month after the month under review.
Definite figures: not later than in the following December.
