KLARAR DIN BIL AVGASKRAVEN?
This publication describes exhaust purification requirements in force since 1971, examines the environmental reasons for the regulations, reviews the factors influencing exhaust quality, and outlines the design features incorporated in 1976 and later models. The new Swedish regulations introduced with effect from 1976 stipulate that maximum concentrations over a run of 1 km shall be 24.2 g co, 2.1 g hydrocarbons and 1.9 g NOX. Maximum lead content per litre petrol is at present 0.4 g. It is emphasised that proper engine maintenance is essential, and that this must be done by qualified mechanics. /TRRL/
