    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of the total vapor pressure of air-containing, volatile, petroleum products. This test method is suitable for testing samples with boiling points above 0°C (32°F) that exert a vapor pressure between 7 and 172 kPa (1 and 25 psi) at 37.8°C (100°F) at a vapor-to-liquid ratio of 4:1. This test method is suitable for testing gasoline samples that contain oxygenates. No account is made of dissolved water in the sample.

    This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to lack of use in the industry.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, this test method was withdrawn in November 2012.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the total vapor pressure of air-containing, volatile, petroleum products. This test method is suitable for testing samples with boiling points above 0°C (32°F) that exert a vapor pressure between 7 and 172 kPa (1 and 25 psi) at 37.8°C (100°F) at a vapor-to-liquid ratio of 4:1. This test method is suitable for testing gasoline samples that contain oxygenates. No account is made of dissolved water in the sample.

    1.1.1 Some gasoline-oxygenate blends may show a haze when cooled to 0 to 1°C. If a haze is observed in 8.5, it shall be indicated in the reporting of results. The precision and bias statements for hazy samples have not been determined (see Note 8).

    1.2 This test method is suitable for the calculation of a dry vapor pressure equivalent (DVPE) by means of a correlation equation (see 13.1). The calculated DVPE very closely approximates the dry vapor pressure that would be obtained on the same material when tested in accordance with Test Method D 4953.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see 7.3 through 7.5 and 9.2.
