a- Standards, shown in black, are established by API, SAE and others. Ranges, shown in teal, represent the high and low data for the majors shown.

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

 c- ASTM D5185-09 Reproducibility by Element.

d- The specification of 15 max is expressed in two significant figures and therefore this result meets specification.
