Revision of E3050-16 Standard Specification for Denatured Ethanol for Use as Cooking and Appliance Fuel


In the fall 2021 semester ballot of E3050, a member found that the denaturant “natural gasoline” was listed twice in Table 2. The committee determined the first entry into the table is correct thus requiring the removal of the second entry in the Table. A regulatory and ASTM reference for this formula was added. The abbreviation for the denaturing formulas was also spelled out to provide full information.

There was also some confusion as to maximum or minimum limits so clarification of “maximum” was added. These conflicting entries could cause confusion as to the proper limit.
