Name：BS EN 590:2013+A1:2017 Automotive fuels -Diesel Requirements and test methods
Significant technical changes between this European Standard and the previous edition are:
Inclusion of the revised EN 14214 FAME specification.
Specific requirements concerning the limitation of use of methylcyclopentadienyl manganese
tricarbonyl (MMT) as required by the EC have been incorporated.
Addition of the Fuel Ignition Tester(EN 16144)as an alternate test method to the cfr engine test.
Addition of Simulated Distillation by gas chromatography (GC)， EN ISO 3924, as an alternate test
method to distillation by EN ISO 3405.
Introduction of the improved EDXRF determination technique for low sulfur contents,EN ISO 13032, in replacement of EN ISO 20847
Annex A is normative and contains the precision data generated on the test methods, which are theresult of inter-laboratory testing, carried out by working groups of CEN/TC 19. Many of the testmethods included in this standard were the subject of inter-laboratory testing to determine theapplicability of the method and its precision in relation to blends of automotive diesel fuel containing10 %(V/or higher of different sources of fatty acid methyl esters.
This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for marketed and delivered automotive diesel fuel. It is applicable to automotive diesel fuel for use in diesel engine vehicles designed to run on automotive diesel fuel containing up to 7, 0 %(/ Fatty Acid Methyl Ester.
