AUTO/OIL AIR QUALITY IMPROVEMENT RESEARCH PROGRAM. TECHNICAL BULLETIN NO. 3. AIR QUALITY MODELING RESULTS FRO REFORMULATED GASOLINES IN YEAR 2005/2010

This technical bulletin presents initial air quality modeling estimates of the effects of changing gasoline composition on ozone levels for Los Angeles in the year 2010 and New York City and Dallas-Fort Worth in the year 2005. The estimates were developed using Auto/Oil test data, emissions models, and air quality models. For this bulletin, modeling was conducted using vehicle emissions results obtained from a fuel matrix which independently varied aromatics (45 and 20 percent), methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) (0 and 15 percent), olefins (20 and 5 percent), and boiling range (T90) (360 degrees F and 280 degrees F). Emissions measurements included the mass and composition of exhaust, evaporative, and running-loss emissions for these fuels in twenty current vehicles (1989 models). The air quality models used in this study are state-of-the-science models in general use for projections of future air quality.
