Class Information
Number: 73/35.02
Name: Measuring and testing > Engine detonation (e.g., knock) > Fuel rating (e.g., octane rating)
Description: Subject matter wherein a measurement of a quality of a test fuel is made by detecting an abnormal rapid combustion (e.g. knock) of the test fuel in the engine and comparing the knock of the test fuel with a knock value of a second fuel having a known fuel rating.
