RECOMMENDED U.S. AUTOMOTIVE EMISSION STANDARDS
This report has suggested that a 49-state automotive emission standard of 2,20,3.1 will meet ambient air quality standards where they can be met. It also indicates that the ambient air quality achieved by the Federal Interim Standards of 1.5,15,3.1 will not achieve an air quality that is measurably better than the suggested standards. Additionally, it suggests that reducing allowable lead additives to approximately 1 gram/gallon from the national level of 2.5 grams will meet ambient air quality requirements for that pollutant.
