    This revision addresses the expansion of the scope of the test method to cover biodiesel blends up to 30 % volume with middle distillate fuels. The expansion of the scope is also in harmony with the revision of ISO 3405, a companion test method. A small study was conducted with several B30 samples using two biodiesel blend stocks with three middle distillate base fuels. The conclusions of that study support the expansion of the scope to B30 and a research report is included with this ballot.
