Revision of D1655-19a Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuels


None Provided


A motion was approved during the December 2019 ASTM Subcommittee J01 meeting in New Orleans to ballot revision of section X1.15.4 Color. Although test method D156 Test Method for Saybolt Color of Petroleum Products (Saybolt Chromometer Method) is listed in in section 2. Referenced Documents of the standard it is not referenced anywhere else in the standard. Section X1.15.4 Color discusses issues with the color of aviation turbine fuels and wording has been added to detail how Saybolt Color testing can be used to identify a potential issue with the fuel. The proposed wording is very similar to the wording currently in Defence Standard 91-091 Issue 11 Annex F.4
