Request for a preliminary ruling from the Bundesfinanzhof in the case Rhein-Ruhr Beschichtungs-Service.

Does Article 2(3) of Council Directive 2003/96/EC restructuring the Community framework for the taxation of energy products and electricity, in relation to the taxation of energy products other than those for which a level of taxation is specified in the Directive, require the application of a rate of tax which national law specifies for the use of an energy product as heating fuel, provided that that other energy product is also used as heating fuel? Or, in cases where the other energy product - in circumstances where it is used as heating fuel - is equivalent to a particular energy product, can the rate of tax specified by national law for this energy product be applied, even in the case where the rate of tax is the same irrespective of whether it is being used as motor fuel or as heating fuel?
