Figures. Blame it on the chemist. They have two protocols which don't yield the same results huh? So which one is correct? Morons. The whole thing is stupid. The limit of 0.005 g/L is so far below what would affect the octane rating of the fuel that they can't measure it accurately. It wouldn't matter if it was 0.005g/L or 0.05g/L it's still too low to affect fuel quality. But they blame it on the method, which probably can't distinguish 0.01 from 0.005. I bet the result was 0.006 and they got all in a snit about them cheating.

Anyway who the hell uses TEL anymore. It probably costs a fortune and has to be smuggled in from Venezuela.
