Abstract
This work shows the use of a long period grating to analyze the quality of a commercial gasoline blend. Samples with different single and double solvent proportions are characterized. It is shown that the addition of controlled amounts of a standard solvent allows differentiating legal blends from tampered blends. With the proper choice of that solvent, it is possible to shift the LPG operation towards a higher sensitivity range, and even samples that deviate little from the legal gasoline blend can be identified.
