|Publication Date:||1 September 2020|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
This test method covers a procedure for assessing the potential storage stability of middle distillate fuels such as Grade No. 1D and Grade No. 2D diesel fuels, in accordance with Specification D975.
This test method is applicable to either freshly refined fuels or fuels already in storage.
This test method is suitable for fuels containing stabilizer additives as well as fuels containing no such additives. However, fuels additized with dispersant additives, including dispersant-containin
