ASTM WK39427

    Revision of D4814 - 11b Standard Specification for Automotive Spark-Ignition Engine Fuel

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4814 - 16a

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.A0 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    This ballot is narrowly focused and seeks only to remove out of date non-mandatory Appendix X1 information from the gasoline specification D4814. It does not seek to include minimum octane number limits. Future octane number task group work will focus on generating the necessary performance data to understand the role of octane number for todays modern vehicles and whether it should be specified in D4814.
