Some Dutch and Belgian customs still appear to be unaware that UK boaters are allowed to use red diesel, and there are fears that fines could be imposed by European officials if visiting boaters cannot provide receipts to show their fuel was bought legally in the UK.

A letter from the European Commission to the RYA stating that it is legal for British boaters to use UK-bought red diesel is available to download at http://www.ybw.com/mbm/pdf/red-diesel-letter.pdf which should help to confirm the situation if problems arise.
