This SAE Recommended Practice applies to Liquefied Natural Gas Vehicle Fuel. The purpose of this document is to provide information on issues that are important to consider regarding LNG metering and dispensing systems.
This SAE Recommended Practice is intended as a guide for standard practice and is subject to change in order to keep pace with experience and technical advances. Its purpose is to promote safety and efficiency by making available to sellers and buyers of commercial liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicle metering and dispensing systems a recommended practice for construction, operation, and maintenance of such systems.
This SAE publication necessarily deals to some extent in generalities, since it is not possible to anticipate and address every individual set of conditions that might be found in constructing, operating, and maintaining LNG vehicle metering and dispensing systems. It is intended to be a practical guide illustrating the application of recommended practices. The correct application of these practices in any actual field situation must rely on sound judgment and experience.
