Gasoline regulations

These regulations limit the concentration of lead in gasoline that is produced, imported, sold or offered for sale in Canada and limit the concentration of phosphorus in unleaded gasoline. The regulations also specify the acceptable analytical methods for determining the concentration of lead and phosphorus in gasoline and impose record-keeping and reporting obligations for leaded gasoline. Gasoline for use in aircraft is exempt from the regulations and leaded gasoline for use in competition vehicles is not subject to the limits.
