Tractor Vaporising Oil History:
Tractor vaporizing oil (or TVO) is a fuel for Petrol-paraffin engines. In the United Kingdom and Australia, after the Second World War, it was commonly used for tractors until diesel engines became normal. In Australian English it was known as power kerosene.
TVO existed for at least fifteen years before it became widely used. A 1920 publication mentions it as a product of BP. But it was not until the late 1930’s that it first became widely used. The post war Ferguson TE20 tractor, a carefully researched and near-ideal tractor for use on British farms, was designed around a petrol engine. Although there was a campaign for the reintroduction of agricultural Road Duty free petrol, which had been curtailed during the war, this was not forthcoming. Perkins Engines supplied some conversions into diesel engines which could use untaxed red diesel.
