Leak Threshold 0.10 gph for a leak rate of 0.2 gph (Version 2.7).
0.05 gph for a leak rate of 0.1 gph (Version 2.6).
These leak thresholds are for evaluation purposes only. 
A tank system should not be declared tight if the test result indicates a loss or gain that equals or exceeds the leak threshold calculated from the data set. This leak threshold may be different than the above leak thresholds.
Applicability Gasoline, diesel. 
Tank Capacity Maximum of 45,000 gallons for single tanks. 
Maximum of 45,000 gallons cumulative capacity for manifolded tank systems with no more than 4 tanks in system.

Of 41 data sets submitted for evaluation, all were analyzed with conclusive results. 
Median monthly throughput of tanks evaluated was 22,370 gallons. 
Leak rates of 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2 gph were used in evaluation. 
Data sets used in this evaluation were supplied by evaluator.
