Table 6 to Subpart DDDDD of Part 63—Fuel Analysis Requirements
As stated in § 63.7521 , you must comply with the following requirements for fuel analysis testing for existing, new or reconstructed affected sources. However, equivalent methods may be used in lieu of the prescribed methods at the discretion of the source owner or operator:
