Diesel Fuel, Chinese Factory Fill
|Publication Date:||1 November 2014|
Material Description. This specification describes a diesel factory-fill fuel for GM China assembly plants. Factory-fill fuel is intended for use in vehicles which are stored for extended periods of time at various locations in the market or in storage tanks where the rate of turnover is low.
This diesel fuel shall be clean, bright and free from contamination with pour and cloud points adequate for production processing and engine operation.
The fuel may also contain additives such as: cetane improver, metal deactivator, antioxidant, corrosion inhibitor, detergent, lubricity improver, biocide, antistatic additive, pour depressant, flow improver, dye, dispersant, deicer, and additives to reduce particulate emissions. Specific type and quantity of these or other types of additives shall be agreed upon by purchaser and seller.
Symbols. Not applicable.
Applicability. This standard defines fuel that could be used as factory-fill fuel. The fuel refers to the preferred standards for factory fill, 9985074 or B 040 1268 (GME). This standard does not replace the requirement of fuels as defined in standards 9985074 or B 040 1268 (GME) and is to be used only as a temporary solution in case of unavailability of approved factory fill diesels either as per 9985074 or B 040 1268 (GME) standards.
Caution: This fuel may not be appropriate for winter use in regions with arctic or severe winter conditions. Use of this fuel in winter months in such regions may necessitate use of various strategies to winterize this fuel such as use of cold flow additives, blending with artic grade diesel as per standards 9985074 or B 040 1268 (GME) or blending with local winterized market place fuel which requires diesel fuel with low temperature properties that vary according to regional requirements depending on season.
Remarks. Nothing in this standard supercedes applicable laws and regulations unless specified exemption has been obtained.
