Does in-line blending of conventional gasoline require an exemption?

Conventional gasoline does not require independent sampling and testing and, therefore, there is no need to obtain an exemption. However, the properties of both reformulated and conventional gasoline are required to be determined by the methods specified in § 80.46. Please refer to the Sampling and Testing Section of this document.(7/1/94)
