1.1 This specification covers fuel blend grades of 6 volume percent to 20 volume percent (%) biodiesel with the remainder being a light middle or middle distillate diesel fuel, collectively designated as B6 to B20. These grades are suitable for various types of diesel engines.
1.1.1 The biodiesel component of the blend shall conform to the requirements of Specification . The remainder of the fuel shall be a light middle or middle distillate grade diesel fuel conforming to Specification grades No. 1-D and No. 2-D of any sulfur level specified with the following exceptions.
