A STUDY OF EXHAUST EMISSIONS FROM TWENTY HIGH MILEAGE OLDSMOBILE DIESEL PASSENGER CARS
This paper describes the results of an exhaust emission testing program conducted by EPA on twenty diesel-powered Oldsmobile passenger cars. Each was a full-size 1978 model equipped with the 350 CID engine. The primary purpose of this program was to assess the emission durability of this engine which was originally designed to operate on gasoline. Secondary objectives included an evaluation of fuel economy, measurement of particulate emissions and gathering of samples for subsequent Ames Test analyses.
