Frequent Questions

Since other ASTM methods are being developed that would allow use of one analyzer to obtain benzene, aromatics, and olefins, will EPA allow any of these new methods to be used in reformulated gasoline certification and/or a refiner's defense?

A refiner that intends to distribute RFG must certify that product using the test methods prescribed in the Final Rule. However, a refiner performing quality assurance testing downstream of the refinery may use other test methods provided these methods have been correlated with EPA's test methods.(7/1/94)
