This Standard applies to the electrical features of power-operated dispensers for petroleum-based fluids (Group IIA fluids), including propane and lighter-than-air fuel such as natural gas, used as fuel in internal combustion engines, where such devices are operated at 750 V and less, in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CE Code, Part I), and are intended to dispense the fuel directly into the fuel storage tank for the engine.
