Additional information

Vacuum gas oils, hydrocracked gas oils, and distillate fuels are liquids at 20°C and 101.3 kPa (CONCAWE, 2010a). There is no guideline method for this endpoint. Data presented based on visual observation, supported by data on melting point and viscosity. Shell (1996) also reported that diesel fuel (CAS # 68834 -30 -5) is a liquid at STP.
