FUEL ECONOMY TRENDS AND CATALYTIC DEVICES

This paper discusses: fuel economy -- definitions, measurement, testing, and passenger car trends; emission control interaction with fuel economy -- emission regulatory progression, engine factors, fuel economy at several emission control levels, and emission compliance; and catalytic converter -- basis for GM decision, unleaded gasoline, GM catalytic converter system, and the yet unregulated emissions. For the mid-1970's, catalytic converter systems provide the best compromise accounting for all considerations.
