2.4.9 Finding the Corrected
API Gravity, Temperature, and Relative
Using the gravity calculator attached to the test kit placard,
determine the corrected API: select the appropriate type of fuel being
tested and turn the computer slide to match the recorded API gravity with
the recorded temperature.
Read and record the corrected gravity, temperature, and relative
density indicated at the 60° mark on the computer scale (Figure 2.20). Refer
to the example shown on the gravity calculator as well.

the test results. Determine if the fuel sample satisfies specified site
Dispose of excess fuel safely and according to site regulations.
