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 (as defined in § 63.7575) may be used in lieu of the prescribed methods at the discretion of the source owner or operator:

To conduct a fuel analysis for the following pollutant . . . You must . . . Using . . .
1. Mercury a. Collect fuel samples Procedure in § 63.7521(c) or ASTM D5192, a or ASTM D7430, a or ASTM D6883, a or ASTM D2234/D2234M a (for coal) or ASTM D6323 a (for solid), or ASTM D4177 a (for liquid), or ASTM D4057 a (for liquid), or equivalent.
