Gasoline octane rating and testing are provided by Intertek on a global basis. The octane labs use CFR (Cooperative Fuel Research) engines and test to ASTM and other industry and regulatory protocols. Octane tests, also referred to as the "engine knock test", measure gasoline characteristics related to engine knocking. Intertek octane labs measure gasoline samples from refineries, storage facilities, storage tanks and pipelines for octane ratings and many other gasoline fuel quality properties.
