Summary

This standard defines the standard tube end dimensions needed to maintain equal interchangeability between all connector designs of the same size and end form.

Test Details

This standard applies to new connectors in assembly operations (unless otherwise indicated) under the following conditions:

  • Gasoline and diesel fuel delivery systems or their vapor venting or evaporative emission control systems
  • Operating pressure up to 500 kPa, 5 bar (72 psi)
  • Operating vacuum down to -50 kPa, -0.5 bar (-7.2 psi)

Types of products / materials generally tested in our labs:

Metal and plastic tubing for fuel delivery systems for automotive and light truck applications

Common Uses

Used to identify whether the assembly meets the minimum functional requirements for quick connect couplings used for supply, return, and vapor/emission fuel system connections.
