(6) In the case of any refinery or importer subject to the complex model standards before January 1, 1998, the calculations used to determine the baseline levels of VOC, toxics, and NOX emissions performance; and
(ii) Records that reflect the storage and movement of the previously certified gasoline within the refinery to the point the previously certified gasoline is used to produce reformulated gasoline or RBOB;
(i) The volume of butane added.
(ii) The volume of the pentane added.
(iii) The volume of reformulated gasoline or RBOB both prior to and subsequent to the butane or pentane blending.
(iv) The purity and properties of the butane specified in § 80.82(c) and (d), as appropriate.
(v) The purity and properties of the pentane specified in § 80.85(c) and (d), as appropriate.
(vi) Compliance with the requirements of §§ 80.82 and 80.85; and
(10) In the case of any interface or transmix used to produce reformulated gasoline or RBOB under § 80.84, records that reflect the results of any sampling and testing of RFG or RBOB required under § 80.84.
(i) Pipelines must keep records showing that interface was designated in the proper manner, according to the designations listed in § 80.84(b)(1);
(ii) Transmix processors and transmix blenders must keep records showing that their transmix meets the definition in § 80.84(a)(2), or contains gasoline and distillate fuel only from the sources listed in § 80.84(e);
(iii) Transmix processors must keep records showing the volumes of reformulated gasoline or RBOB recovered from transmix and the type and amount of any blendstock added, if applicable; and
(iv) Transmix blenders must keep records showing compliance with the quality assurance program and/or sampling and testing requirements in § 80.84(d)(2) or (d)(3), and for each batch of reformulated gasoline or RBOB with which transmix is blended, the volume of the batch, and the volume of transmix blended into the batch;
(c)Refiners and importers of averaged gasoline. In addition to other requirements of this section, any refiner or importer who produces or imports any reformulated gasoline for which compliance with one or more applicable standard is determined on an average shall maintain records containing the following information:

(1) The name and EPA registration number of the oxygenate blender that received the RBOB; and
(2) The volume and oxygenate requirements of the RBOB dispensed.
(g)Retailers before January 1, 1998. Prior to January 1, 1998 any retailer that sells or offers for sale any reformulated gasoline shall maintain at each retail outlet the product transfer documentation for the most recent three deliveries to the retail outlet of each grade of reformulated gasoline sold or offered for sale at the retail outlet, and shall make such documentation available to any person conducting any gasoline compliance survey pursuant to § 80.68.
