Merchant Ships generally use 3 types of fuels . Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) , Low Sulfur Fuel Oil (LSFO) and diesel oil. Heavy fuel oil ( high / low sulphur content ) or marine diesel oil is used . Heavy fuel oil is heated around 130 deg Celsius to maintain its viscosity. Since HFO is cheaper modern ships are equipped with super long stroke engines for maximum efficiency.
