At its interim meeting last week, the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) decided to schedule a vote on a proposal to mandate a 10 micron filter for diesel dispensers that serve automobiles. NCWM will consider the issue again at its annual meeting in July 2015, despite it being voted down at its previous meeting in July 2014. Currently the standard is a 30 micron filter for diesel fuel dispensers on the automotive service island.
