1.1 This method covers one method for an evaluation of the inherent storage stability of distillate fuels having flash points above 38 °C and 90%
distillation recovered points below 340 °C.

NOTE 1 – The range of fuels examined in the precision evaluation programme all fell within the above parameters. Fully distillate fuels having an 85% recovery temperature of up to 350 °C can be expected to give similar precision, and the Scope will be extended when sufficient test data becomes available.

1.2 This method is not intended as a quality control test but, rather, is intended for research use to shorten storage time relative to that required at ambient storage temperatures.
