LOW-ALTITUDE AND LOW-TEMPERATURE EXHAUST EMISSIONS TESTS OF FOUR VEHICLES ON OXYGENATED GASOLINE BLENDS AND GASOLINE FUELS
The Coordination Research Council (CRC) initiated a project to study the effect of altitude and the use of oxygenated gasoline blends on motor vehicle exhaust emissions at 75 F and low temperature. The EPA MVEL provided four open-loop carbureted motor vehicles to be tested at low-altitude. The report describes the tests performed on the four motor vehicles. Test results, vehicle specifications, fuel specifications and emission results are included.
