Fuels Registration, Reporting, and Compliance Help

A refiner produces a tank of conventional gasoline on December 30, 1995. The tank is not shipped until January 2, 1996. Must the refiner include this batch in his 1995 volume or does he have the option of including it in either 1995 or 1996?

Compliance for a particular batch of conventional gasoline is based on the date the batch is produced, not shipped. As a result, the batch identified in the question would be included in the 1995 compliance calculations. However, the volume for that batch would be the entire shipped volume, even though the shipment did not occur until 1996.(7/1/94)
