ISO 20847:2004 specifies an energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) test method for the determination of the sulfur content of motor gasolines, including those containing up to 2,7 % (m/m) oxygen, and of diesel fuels, including those containing up to 5 % (V/V) fatty acid methylester (FAME), having sulfur contents in the range 30 mg/kg to 500 mg/kg. Other products may be analysed and other sulfur contents may be determined according to this test method, however, no precision data for products other than automotive fuels and for results outside the specified range have been established for ISO 20847:2004. For reasons of spectral overlap, ISO 20847:2004 is not applicable to leaded motor gasolines, lead-replacement gasolines containing 8 mg/kg potassium to 20 mg/kg potassium, or to products and feedstocks containing lead, silicon, phosporus, calcium, potassium or halides at concentrations greater than one-tenth of the concentration of sulfur measured.
