Dear customer,

Please note that the EI publishing department has moved to a new print supplier for 2021. The option to purchase Hard Copies of our publications has been suspended until the New Year, when we will be making select areas of the catalogue available again.

This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the vapour pressure, exerted in vacuo, by volatile, low viscosity petroleum products, components, ethanol blends up to 85 % (V/V ), and feedstocks using a variable volume chamber. A dry vapour pressure equivalent (DVPE) is calculated from the vapour pressure.

This document is applicable to fuels containing oxygenated compounds up to the limits stated in the relevant Council Directive 85/536/EEC [6], and for ethanol‑fuel blends up to 85 % (V/V) ethanol.
