Revision of D8114-19b Standard Test Method for Measurement of Effects of Automotive Engine Oils on Fuel Economy of Passenger Cars and Light-Duty Trucks in Sequence VIE Spark Ignition


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.
