  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover positive displacement liquid meters for use with motor fuels. Motor fuels, as defined by these requirements, include one or more of the fuels described in 1.2.

    1.2 Meters covered by these requirements are intended for use with one or more of the following as applicable:

    a)    Diesel fuel and diesel/biodiesel blends with nominal biodiesel concentrations up to 5 percent (B0-B5) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oils, ASTM D975;

    b)    Diesel/biodiesel blends with nominal biodiesel concentrations from 5 percent up to 20 percent (B6 – B20) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oil, Biodiesel Blends (B6 – B20), ASTM D7467;

    c)    Biodiesel (B99.9/B100) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Biodiesel Fuel Blend Stock (B100) for Middle Distillate Fuels, ASTM D6751;

    d)    Kerosene formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Kerosine, ANSI/ASTM D3699; or

    e)    Fuel oil (heating oil) formulated in accordance with the Standard Specification for Fuel Oils, ASTM D396.

    1.3 Meters covered by this standard are for use in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association's Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code, ANSI/NFPA 30, and the Code for Motor Fuel Dispensing Facilities and Repair Garages, ANSI/NFPA 30A.

    1.4 These requirements do not cover:

    a)    Meters for use with fuels other than as described in 1.2;

    b)    Velocity meters, head meters, or area meters;

    c)    Meters for use in centralized fuel oil distribution systems; and

    d)    Meter components incorporating electrical circuits except those meeting intrinsically safe or explosion standards.

    1.5 Determinations of the suitability of registers, counters, or computers used or provided with these meters, or the accuracy of measurement resulting from or required in actual application are not within the scope of these requirements.
