EFFECT OF GASOLINE ADDITIVES ON GASEOUS EMISSIONS, (PART II)
A study has been conducted to determine the effects of nitrogen-containing fuel additives in gasoline on regulated and nonregulated automotive emissions. Methodology was developed to measure possible nitrogen-containing compounds and was used to analyze the emissions from a variety f cars without catalysts. No effects due to the additives could be discerned. Of the nonregulated nitrogen compounds analyzed, ammonia, amines, nitriles, nitrosoamines, and aryl nitro compounds were not detected; HCN, cyanogen, and alkyl nitro compounds were measured. Emission data are included from a rotary engine (Mazda), an air-cooled engine (Volkswagen), and two standard V-8 engines (Chevrolet and Ford). Six nitrogen-containing additives chosen for their common usage were tested.
