Proposed Revisions in SAE 30R1 Fuel Hose Specification 800788
In 1974 the Federal Government issued a requirement that new cars would be required to use unleaded fuel beginning with the 1975 models. This mandatory use of unleaded fuel was the factor that changed the availability of an economic, universal fuel hose specification - SAE J30R1.
The SAE Committee has been reviewing the requirements of present day fuel hoses and taking into consideration the projected fuels to be used in vehicles. The fuels included gas extended with various alcohols, high and low aromatic content and their effects on the hoses.
