— Devices that measure for purposes of charging are type approved for product delivered and sealed by a Weights and Measure official.
— Fuel dispensers are labeled in accordance to State and Federal requirements.
— Unit of sale be in dollars per gallon or liter.
The author provides an overview of these areas and information on how to obtain a developmental engine fuel variance; what is needed to develop a consensus organization standard; device type approval process; and the current labeling requirements.
