Interpreting regulations for reformulated fuels. R.L. Thompson. Pipe Line Ind., August 1994, 77(8), 45--46.

Pipeline transportation of reformulated gasoline is discussed in relation to product fungibility, specifications, and product codes. Controlling parameters for reformulated gasoline are RVP, oxygen content, and benzene. Field tests using phenolphthalein as a gasoline marker show that this does not mix with gasoline and is later found in water, on pipeline surfaces, and in other products. Pipeline product costs are described and transfer documentation is discussed. Data contained in the latter are listed. Quality control parameters are used to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Requirements for pipeline record keeping are reviewed.
