    The revision consists in adding an Appendix to D6730 in order to provide the necessary elements needed to to calculate the Particle Matter Index (PMI) which correlates the analytical results of ASTM D6730 to the actual particulate matter that results in the combustion of a spar-ignition engines. This calculation required that the identification of number of components be extended in order to bring the % of unknowns down to 0.5% or better. The research to obtain this data was obtained under the sponsorship of the CRC (Coordinating Research Council ). The information of this grant is too be included in the Appendix of D6730.
