Specification Test Methods



The combined expertise derived from fuel production, handling and use permits a pattern of property limitations to be specified which together help balance the opposing demands for satisfactory performance, production availability and cost control. In the event of a problem in service, the tightening of existing limits and/or the need for limits on additional properties are investigated. Conversely, fuel availability and costs are generally improved if easement of existing limits is found to be practicable.
