Standard Test Methods for
Lead in Gasoline by X-Ray Spectroscopy1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 5059; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of the last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of the total
lead content of gasoline within the following concentration
0.010 to 5.0 g Pb/US gal
0.012 to 6.0 g Pb/UK gal
0.0026 to 1.32 g Pb/L
1.1.1 Test Methods A and B cover the range of 0.10 to 5.0
g Pb/US gal. Test Method C covers the range of 0.010 to 0.50
g Pb/US gal.
1.1.2 These test methods compensate for normal variation
in gasoline composition and are independent of lead alkyl type.

1.3 The values stated in SI are to be regarded as the
standard. For reporting purposes, the values stated in grams per
U.S. gallons are the preferred units in the United States. Note
that in other countries, other units can be preferred.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard
