Ohio Fuel Quality Legislation

Passing Senate Bill 383, would enable Ohio to join the other 46 states in the Union to “establish requirements modeled on the uniform laws & regulations of the National Institute of Standards and technology published in Handbook 130 and that incorporate standards for motor fuel based on standards developed by the American Society for Testing & Materials Committee D02 on petroleum products and lubricants.” (Article)

Alaska, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania are the only three states reportedly not having similar laws.

The bill also re-enacts Ohio Revised Code § 319.56, which had been repealed in 1974, now designating county auditors to be inspectors of commercially sold motor fuels in their respective areas.

(Auditor as inspector of weights & measure, ORC § 319.59 )
