Following in Missouri’s footsteps, Georgia recently announced its ban on 303 fluids. Missouri was the first state to take action against low-quality, 303 fluids being marketed as legitimated tractor hydraulic fluids. These fluids claim to meet John Deere’s 303 specification, which was obsoleted 47 years ago. Most of these fluids fail to meet the current J20C specification and are often formulated with down treated additives or line wash fluid. 

Contrary to Missouri’s minimum requirement of J20A, all tractor hydraulic fluids sold in Georgia will need to meet J20C/D as a minimum requirement. Oil marketers have 180 days to comply with these regulations and properly label their products.
