a- Standards, shown in black, are established by API, SAE and others.

b-Test Method used for metal analysis is ASTM ASTM D5185.

c- ASTM D5185-09 Reproducibility by Element.

d- This specification is expressed to two significant figures, therefore results up to 15.5 are considered on specification. The API's "Expanded Range" is <=16.62%.

"n/a" - Not applicable.
