Fuel Systems and Components - Electrostatic Charge Mitigation
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Fuels that are in a liquid state at ambient temperatures and atmospheric pressures and are contained in vehicle fuel tanks that operate at or near atmospheric pressure. This includes gasoline and diesel fuels, as well as their blends with additives such as alcohols, esters, and ethers, whether the additives are petroleum based or bio-fuel based.
The group of components that comprise the fuel system (in contact and not in contact with fuels).
Other components in proximity to the fuel system that may be affected by electrostatic fields caused by the fuel system.
Electrostatic phenomena that arise from, or are affected by, the following aspects of vehicle or fuel system operation:
Flowing fuel in the fuel delivery system.
Flowing fuel being dispensed to the vehicle while it is being fueled.

Fuel Systems Standards Committee
The Fuel Systems Standards Committee reports to the Powertrain Systems Group of the Motor Vehicle Council. The Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports related to all aspects of the vehicle fuel system from the connections to the engine back to the gas cap including the interface between the vehicle fuel system and refueling infrastructure at fueling stations. The Committee¿s scope only includes liquid fuels such as gasoline, diesel and alternative fuel blends, and, as a contributor to ISO work, the committee covers gaseous fuels such as natural gas, LPG and hydrogen. Participants in the SAE Fuel Systems Standards Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties.
