(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

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
(iii) Twelve (12) pounds per square inch during May, June,
July, August, and September.

exceed the following:
(i) Sixteen (16) pounds per square inch during November,

(iii) Thirteen (13) pounds per square inch during May, June,
July, August, and September.
(F) After July 23, 2004, gasoline may not contain more
than one-half percent (0.5%) of MTBE by volume.
(A) Flash Test . Method ASTM D-56. Flash point may not be
lower than one hundred (100) degrees Fahrenheit.
(B) For the purpose of this chapter, any petroleum product
designated by name or reference as "kerosene" must meet the
federal specifications for kerosene VV-K-211d in effect on
March 1, 1977.
(c) Gasoline, gasohol, and kerosene products that do not comply
with the minimum specifications described in subsection (b) may not
be sold, offered for sale, or used in Indiana.
(d) Petroleum products other than gasoline, gasohol, or kerosene
