1.1 This test method covers the determination of the boiling range distribution of gasoline and liquid gasoline blending components. It is applicable to petroleum products and fractions with a final boiling point of 280 °C (536 °F) or lower, as measured by this test method.

1.2 This test method is designed to measure the entire boiling range of gasoline and gasoline components with either high or low vapor pressure and is commonly referred to as Simulated Distillation (SimDis) by gas chromatographers.

1.3 This test method has been validated for gasoline containing ethanol. Gasolines containing other oxygenates are not specifically excluded, but they were not used in the development of this test method.

1.4 This test method can estimate the concentration of n-pentane and lighter saturated hydrocarbons in gasoline.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.5.1 Results in degrees Fahrenheit can be obtained by simply substituting Fahrenheit boiling points in the calculation of the boiling point-retention time correlation.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
