Certification Leak rate of 0.2 gph with PD > 99.9% and PFA = 0.0%. 
Leak rate of 0.1 gph with PD > 99.0% and PFA < 1.0%.
Leak Threshold If the absolute value of the calculated leak rate (gain or loss) is less than the leak threshold and the minimum detectable leak rate is less than or equal to 0.2 gph (0.1 gph for the 0.1 gph test), the test result is "pass." If the absolute value of the calculated leak rate is greater than or equal to the leak threshold, the result is "fail." If the minimum detectable leak rate exceeds 0.2 gph (0.1 gph for the 0.1 gph test) and the absolute value of the calculated leak rate is less than the leak threshold, the test result is "inconclusive."
Applicability Gasoline, diesel new crank oil, used crank oil, aviation fuel, kerosene, waste oil. 
Other more viscous liquids may be tested after consultation with the vendor.
Tank Capacity Maximum of 60,000 gallons for single tank.
