TEST VARIABILITY OF EMISSION AND FUEL ECONOMY MEASUREMENTS USING THE 1975 FEDERAL TEST PROCEDURE
Several sets of repetitive test data using the 1975 Federal Test Procedure ('75 FTP) have been analyzed to establish the variability of each component measured during each phase of the test. The variability characteristics of four different emission control systems have been discussed and compared. The over variabilities of the '75 FTP composite values have been assessed at plus-minus 6% for hydrocarbons and CO, plus-minus 3% for NOX, and plus-minus 1% for CO2. The extremely repeatable behavior of the CO2 emissions is utilized to calculate the fuel economy during the test. This calculation is discussed and some fuel economy results from repetitive tests are presented.
