1.1 This specification covers five grades of diesel fuel oils suitable for various types of diesel engines. These grades are described as follows:

1.1.1 Grade Low Sulfur No. 1-D-A special-purpose, light distillate fuel for automotive diesel engines requiring low sulfur fuel and requiring higher volatility than that provided by Grade Low Sulfur No. 2-D.

1.1.2 Grade Low Sulfur No. 2-D- A general-purpose, middle distillate fuel for automotive diesel engines requiring low sulfur fuel. It is also suitable for use in non-automotive applications, especially in conditions of varying speed and load.

1.1.3 Grade No. 1-D-A special-purpose, light distillate fuel for automotive diesel engines in applications requiring higher volatility than that provided by Grade No. 2-D fuels.

1.1.4 Grade No. 2-D-A general-purpose, middle distillate fuel for automotive diesel engines, which is also suitable for use in non-automotive applications, especially in conditions of frequently varying speed and load.

1.1.5 Grade No. 4-D-A heavy distillate fuel, or a blend of distillate and residual oil, for low- and medium-speed diesel engines in non-automotive applications involving predominantly constant speed and load.

Note 1-A more detailed description of the grades of diesel fuel oils is given in Appendix X1.2.

1.2 This specification, unless otherwise provided by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier, prescribes the required properties of diesel fuels at the time and place of delivery.

1.2.1 Nothing in this specification shall preclude observance of federal, state, or local regulations which may be more restrictive.

Note 2-The generation and dissipation of static electricity can create problems in the handling of distillate diesel fuel oils. For more information on the subject, see Guide D 4865.

1.3 Values are stated in SI units and are regarded as the standard.
