* To meet special operating conditions, modifications of individual limiting requirements may be agreed upon between purchaser, seller and manufacturer.

** The carbon residue shall be run on the 100% sample.

# A considerable amount of experience exists in the US with a 20% blend of biodiesel with 80% diesel fuel (B20).

Although biodiesel (B100) can be used, blends of over 20% biodiesel with diesel fuel should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis until further experience is available.
