Hi, why did you choose C? I think that C & D are used for determining heat value of fuels. With measurement of sulfur content in fuel, I only know the ASTM D129 use bomb method.

Did you mean this method?

Sulphur content in lighter and heavier petroleum products is generally determined respectively by lamp method and bomb method.

So, I think best one is bomb method.
