Subject: Notice of Printing Error in the Uniform Engine Fuels and Automotive Lubricants Regulation

Please be advised that there is a printing error on page 175 of Handbook 130 in Section 2.1 Gasoline and Gasoline-Oxygenate Blends of the Engine Fuels and Automotive Lubricants Regulation. When the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) adopted revisions to Section 2.1 in 2009 it was the NCWM’s intent to delete subsections 2.1.4 ASTM or other requirements and 2.1.5 Blends of gasoline and ethanol and renumber subsections 2.1.6,2.1.7, 2.1.8, 2.1.9 and 2.10 accordingly.

Here is a corrected version of the Engine Fuel Regulation in Microsoft Word for your reference and use. We will revise Section 2.1 in the online version of the Uniform Engine Fuels and Automotive Lubricants Regulation of the 2011 Edition of NIST Handbook 130 and correct the error in the next printed edition of this handbook.

We apologize for any confusion that may have resulted from this error.
