A review was conducted of studies and evaluations made by the EPA and various State agencies of the technical feasibility, emission reduction effectiveness, and costs associated with implementing various approaches for reducing the emission of air pollutants from automobiles currently in use. These approaches include: inspection/maintenance programs, retrofit programs, and the conversion of in-use vehicles to permit the use of gaseous fuels. The emphasis of this report is on providing emission reduction and cost data that may be useful to the States in evaluating the alternative approaches to in-use vehicle emission control, as those approaches may be applied to their particular air quality requirements. This report is supplementary to previous EPA publications covering these same topical areas.
