NO. 2-D S15 | Diesel Fuel Oil Testing According to ASTM D975-18a

ASTM D975-18a, Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oils, defines and provides specifications for No. 2-D S15 fuel oil.

No. 2-D S15 is ultra-low sulfur (ULSD) middle distillate fuel used for general purpose diesel engine applications with varying speed and load with a maximum of 15 ppm sulfur allowed.

Paragon is capable of performing all of the analysis related to the testing of No. 2-D S15 fuel oil according to ASTM D975-18a Table 1 requirements.

Procedures included on our A2LA Scope of Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 are designated as such.
