A method of total saturated and total aromatics determination in oils and oil products by electron ionization mass spectrometry is presented. The contribution of saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons to the total ion current is found by solving a system of linear equations with coefficients that take stock a mutual interference of the mass spectra of saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons.
