|Publication Date:||1 February 2016|
This specification covers natural gasoline to be used as a hydrocarbon blendstock in ethanol fuel blends for flexiblefuel automotive spark-ignition engines (Specification D5798). In the United States, these blends are referred to commercially as Ethanol Flex Fuel.
This specification also covers natural gasoline to be used as a denaturant in denatured fuel ethanol for blending with gasolines for use as automotive spark-ignition engine fuel (Specification D4806).
Specific regulatory requirements for the intended uses from various jurisdictions are given in appendixes for information.
This specification is not intended to provide a market specification nor a regulatory reference for natural gasoline for any use other than as a hydrocarbon blendstock in ethanol fuel blends or as a denaturant in denatured fuel ethanol.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
