Fuels Registration, Reporting, and Compliance Help

How will a terminal designate a mixture of transmix and ?off-spec? fuel that might be a combination of 15 ppm, all grades of 500 ppm, heating oil, and jet fuel? Will this designation(s) limit the marketing options of a transmix handler beyond the limits

The designation is left to the terminal. The designation must be clear and accurate, therefore the sulfur level of the mixture will limit the designation options. Beyond that, the designate and track compliance calculations have been designed to minimize, if not eliminate, any unintended marketing limitations.
