Active Standard ASTM D7862 | Developed by Subcommittee: D02.A0
Book of Standards Volume: 05.04
This specification covers butanol intended to be blended with gasoline at 1 to 12.5 volume % for use as an automotive spark-ignition engine fuel. It addresses performance requirements, workmanship, sampling, containers, sample handling, and test methods.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
Significance and Use
A1.5. Significance and Use
A1.5.1 Butanol is a potential blendstock for blending with gasoline provided that it meets a purity specification of >96.0 % butanol in accordance with Specification D7862. This test method provides a method of determining the percentage of butanol (purity) of the butanol for blending with gasoline.
1.1.1 Butanol contains 22 mass % oxygen. The mass % of oxygen of a butanol blend with gasoline depends on the volume % of butanol blended, the density of the butanol isomer and the density of the base blendstock.
