This test method covers the measurement of sulfur in nonleaded gasoline and gasoline-oxygenate blends. The applicable concentration range is 48 to 1000 mg/kg sulfur.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, this test method was withdrawn without replacement in October 2009, because Test Method D4294 has a better precision using the same technology.
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of sulfur in nonleaded gasoline and gasoline-oxygenate blends. The applicable concentration range is 48 to 1000 mg/kg sulfur.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The preferred concentration units are mg/kg sulfur.
1.3 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 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 precautionary statements, see Sections 5 and 7.
