Your Committee on Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development , to which was referred House Bill 1338 , has had the same under consideration and begs leave to report the same back to the House with the recommendation that said bill be amended as follows:
conducted in accordance with the methods outlined by the American
Society for Testing and Materials.
(b) The inspections and tests as to gasoline, gasohol, and kerosene must reflect the following minimum specifications necessary for the approval of the product:
(1) Gasoline or gasohol:
(A) Corrosion Test . Method ASTM D-130. A clean copper strip may not show more than extremely slight discoloration when submerged in the gasoline for three (3) hours at one hundred twenty-two (122) degrees Fahrenheit.
(B) Distillation Range . Method ASTM D-86. When the thermometer reads one hundred sixty-seven (167) degrees Fahrenheit, not less than ten percent (10%) may be evaporated. When the thermometer reads two hundred eighty-four (284) degrees Fahrenheit, not less than fifty percent (50%) may be evaporated. When the thermometer reads three hundred ninety-two (392) degrees Fahrenheit, not less than ninety percent (90%) may be evaporated. The residue may not exceed two percent (2%). Percent evaporated is found by adding the distillation loss to the amount collected in the receiver at each specification temperature.
(C) Sulphur . Method ASTM D-1266 or D-2622. Sulphur may not exceed twenty-five hundredths of one percent (0.25%).
(D) Vapor Pressure . Method ASTM D-4953, ASTM D-5191, or any other ASTM method to determine vapor pressure approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. For gasoline, the Reid vapor pressure at one hundred (100) degrees Fahrenheit may not exceed the following:
(i) Fifteen (15) pounds per square inch at the normal barometric pressure at the point of delivery during November, December, January, February, and March.
(ii) Fourteen (14) pounds per square inch during April and October.
(iii) Twelve (12) pounds per square inch during May, June, July, August, and September.
(E) For gasohol (a blend of gasoline and alcohol permitted under federal tax requirements), the vapor pressure may not exceed the following:
and when so amended that said bill do pass.
