I am advised by Revue that the available information is the volume of marked gas oil (MGO) on which Excise was paid and the value of the net Excise receipts (carbon and non-carbon components) collected for the three years to 2019. A breakdown of MGO by source (whether through intra-community acquisition or imported from third countries) is not available.

I am advised by Revenue that the vast bulk of MGO sold in Ireland is brought into the State as diesel and then has the relevant markers applied to it, before being sold.

Volumes and net receipts for MGO for all years to 2019 are available at the following links:
