ASTM WK66501

    Revision of D975 - 18a Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oils

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D975 - 19a

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.E0 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK66501


    Keywords

    biodiesel; biodiesel blend; diesel; fuel oil; petroleum and petroleum products;;

    Rationale

    The position of the requirement for aromatics control via D1319 or D976 indicates this is a performance property. It is actually a US EPA requirement. The proposed change will move the requirement to a footnote of Table 1, much as the subcommittee handled the US requirement for the use of red dye in fuel oil.
