Recent amendments to the Clean Air Act require use of oxygenated gasoline during winter months in about forty urban areas across the United States. Generally, winter gasoline must contain 2.7 percent by weight of oxygen; California has been allowed to use a lower level, 2.0 percent. To determine the effectiveness of oxygenated gasoline in reducing carbon monoxide (CO) emissions, the author and two graduate students designed a study to expand upon previous emission research by testing a large number of on-road vehicles.
