No.1~No.6 fuel oil in this Standard are formulated by equivalently adopting ASTM
D396-93 “Standard specification for fuel oils”. Based on the current practical situation,
it adds the high-viscosity No.7 fuel oil. The writing format of the standard is in
accordance with GB/T 1.1-1993; test methods adopt, as possible, the Chinese
national standards or industry standards which are the same as or corresponding to
the methods of ASTM standard.
This Standard replaces the SH 0356-92, since the date of implementation.
This Standard was proposed by and shall be under the jurisdiction of Sinopec
Petrochemical Science Research Institute.
Responsible drafting organization of this Standard. Sinopec Petrochemical Science
Research Institute.

Fuel oil
1 Scope 
This Standard specifies the technical conditions of eight kinds of fuel oils used in
different operating conditions and in different burners.
This Standard can be used for specification of fuel oils in supply-purchase contract. It
can also be used as the guide when the fuel oil users select the most suitable
grade-numbers they need.

3 Grade‐numbers 
Fuel oil can be divided into eight grade-numbers. No.1, No.2, No.4-light, No.4,
No.5-light, No.5-heavy, No.6, and No.7.
No.1 and No.2 are distillate fuel oil that apply to home-use or industrial small burner.
Especially, the No.1 applies to pneumatic type burner, or it can be used at the
occasion that the low pour point fuel oil is required in the storage conditions.
No.4-light and No.4 are heavy distillate fuel oil, or the fuel oil that is combined by
distillate fuel oil and residual fuel oil. They apply to the industrial burners which require
this viscosity range.
No.5-light, No.5-heavy, No.6, and No.7 are the residual fuel oil of which the viscosity
and distillation range are incremental. They apply to industrial burners. In order to
load-unload and atomize normally, the fuel oil usually needs to be preheated.

1 If there is one index of certain grade-number of fuel oil in this Standard not complying, it still can not be
automatically changed to the next grade-number, unless it complies with all the requirements of the next
grade-number. However, for modification of individual indicators of special operating conditions, it can be
negotiated among buyer, seller and manufacturing plant.
2 Test methods can also adopt the corresponding methods listed in Chapter 2. However, the test method
specified in Table 1 is the arbitration method.
1) The total value OF water that is determined by using the distillation method in GB/T 260 AND
precipitates that are determined by using extraction method in GB/T 6531 shall not be more than the
value shown in the table. The precipitates obtained by extraction method in No.6 fuel oil must not be
more than 0.50% (m/m). When the water and precipitates are more than 1% (v/v), the value shall be all
deducted from the total value. When the water and precipitates of No.7 fuel oil are more than 2% (v/v),
the value shall be all deducted from the total value. If there is dispute, the measuring results in GB/T
6533 shall prevail.
2) If low-sulfur fuel oil is needed, the light-viscosity fuel oil can be supplied in accordance with the
negotiation between the supplier and purchaser.
3) The limit value is to guarantee the lowest heat value, and to avoid misinformation as No.2 fuel oil and
incorrect use.
4) As long as it is needed by storage and use, the pour point can be specified to be lower and higher.
However, when the pour point is lower than -18°C, the viscosity of No.2 fuel oil shall not be less than
1.7 mm2/s. At the same time, it shall not control the 90% of recovery temperature.
5) If the low-sulfur fuel oil is needed, No.6 fuel oil shall be divided into grades of low pour point (not more
than +15°C) or high pour point (do not control the maximum value); if the oil tank and pipeline are
without heating facilities, it shall use the low-pour-point fuel oil.
5 Marks, packaging, transportation, and storage 
Marks, packaging, transportation, storage, and delivery acceptance shall be
conducted in accordance with SH 0164.
6 Sampling 
Sampling shall be in accordance with GB/T 4756; take 2L of fuel oil for inspection and
