Dear Mr. Burke:

This is in response to your letter concerning the classification of engine starting fluid under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49~CFR Parts 17-180). Specifically, you requested the shipping description and classification for a mixture consisting of flammable liquids and carbon dioxide that is transported at a pressure of approximately 150 psig. The mixture was previously transported under the shipping description,Engine starting fluid UN~960 which was removed from the Hazardous Materials Table under Docket HM-25B [62 FR 24703] published May 6, 1997. You state that the mixture is not contained in an aerosol container.

Based on the information you submitted, the appropriate descripti6n for the formulation is Liquefied gas, flammable, n.o.s.,11 UN3161.

I hope this information is helpful. Please contact this office if we can be of further assistance.
