REPORT BY THE COMMITTEE ON MOTOR VEHICLE EMISSIONS
An evaluation was made of the technological feasibility, cost and fuel use associated with meeting various light-duty motor vehicle emissions standards for nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide. Emissions control of conventional automobile engines and alternative engines for automobiles are considered. Costs of emissions control, manufacturing constraints, and field performance and maintenance are analyzed. Various automotive fuels for automobiles and test methods and procedures for emissions and fuel economy are also considered.
