The samples can be analyzed on: Aromatics by FIA, Aromatics by HPLC, Bocle, Colour Saybolt, Density @ 15C, Distillation (IBP, 10% recovered , 20% recovered, 50% recovered, 90% recovered, FBP),Cu,  Existent gum, Freezing Point, Mercaptan, Particle Size, sulphur, Smoke Point, Specific Energy, Total acidity, Total Sulphur, Naphthalenes, MSEP, Flash Point,Total Acidity, JFTOT, Viscosity @ -20C and FAME Content.
