Abstract
Abstract

We present here several gravity tests made with the latest INPOP08 planetary ephemerides. We first propose two methods to estimate the PPN parameter β and its correlated value, the Sun J2, and we discuss the correlation between the Sun J2 and the mass of the asteroid ring. We estimate a possible advance in the planet perihelia. We also show that no constant acceleration larger than 1/4 of the Pioneer anomaly is compatible with the observed motion of the planets in our Solar System.
