04e1 Standard Test Method for Corrosiveness to Copper from Petroleum Products by Copper Strip Test: Ethanol Shield is rated 1A, the highest level of protection possible.
05 Standard Test Method for Oxidation Stability of Gasoline (Induction Period Method): After testing, which simulates 1 year of aging, there were no signs of fuel aging with Ethanol Shield added to the gasoline, up to 1-year stabilization. Ethanol Shield stabilizes up to 3 years when used according to instructions.
8 Standard Test Method for Water in Organic Liquids by Coulometric Karl Fischer Titration: Ethanol Shield has the ability to draw up to 3.9% mass of water in a hydrocarbon solution. This is an excellent level of performance considering that E-10 gasoline only holds up to .5% of water in suspension before phase separation begins.
