    WK44305 has been deleted due to a lengthy program. This WK is a replacement. The current precision was established many years ago. Concerns have been raised that the precision, up to 60C, should be re-evaluated with a new sample set as it is a significant aviation fuel specification test. This precision revision and associated ILS will be run in parallel with an exercise (Multi Method Study MMS) to evaluate the equivalence with some other test methods. This is a joint program with the UK Energy Institute(EI) - the ILS is ASTM and the MMS is EI funded. This WK will the ILS and Study.
