    Rationale

    During the October 25, 2019 Sequence VI Surveillance Panel Conference call, the panel agreed to allow for alternate fuel approval for the fuel used for Sequence VIE tests. As a result, footnote 19 has been updated to refer to new Annex A18, which delineates the testing requirements for a fuel to be considered as a candidate for an alternate. Reference Documents have also been updated to include API 1525 as a reference.
