    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers a 100 % middle distillate fuel oil with no residual fuel oil contamination for use in military marine applications (non-aviation gas turbine engines, compression ignition/diesel engines, and other non-automotive applications), and emergency generator applications (military or commercial).

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, this specification was withdrawn in July 2010 due to the fact that SC E has been unable to find anyone using this specification or in support of maintaining this specification.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers a 100 % middle distillate fuel oil with no residual fuel oil contamination for use in military marine applications (non-aviation gas turbine engines, compression ignition/diesel engines, and other non-automotive applications), and emergency generator applications (military or commercial).

    1.2 This specification, unless otherwise provided by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier, prescribes the required properties of middle distillate fuel at the time and place of delivery. Nothing in this specification shall preclude observance of federal, state, or local regulations that may be more restrictive.

    1.3 During handling and use of all middle distillate fuels, the generation and dissipation of static electricity can create fire and explosion hazards. For more information on this subject see Guide D 4865.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.5 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 requirements prior to use.
