IP 40 - Oxidation Stability of Gasoline
We perform fuel quality testing by IP 40 to determine the oxidation stability of gasoline in finished form only under accelerated oxidation conditions. Gasoline fuel stored for an extended period of time can suffer from oxidation. This can cause residues and gums to form. These fuel residues and gums can cause serious problems with engines and fuel systems. The induction period may be used as an indication of the tendency of motor gasoline to form gum in storage.
We also perform oxidation stability testing by ASTM D2112, ASTM D2272, ASTM D2274, ASTM D2440, ASTM D525, ASTM D7462, ASTM D873, ASTM D942, ASTM D943, DIN 51587, EN 15751, IP 142, IP 388, ISO 12205, ISO 4623, and ISO 7536. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types. Click on the test method number to learn more about each test.
