Puerto Rico refineries are considered federal gasoline producers. If their fuel remains seasonally the same throughout the year, they meet the criteria of a refiner marketing in an area with no seasonal changes, and they are only required to provide three months of data. In such a case, all fuels would be evaluated by the seasonal Complex Model which matches their year-round season. If the fuel does change seasonally, then they are required to provide data on both the "summer" fuel and "winter" fuel.(7/1/94)

Is Puerto Rico considered a domestic producer? There are no federal RVP standards there--do they use summer fuels in the winter complex model?
