APPROACHES TO LOW EMISSION LEVELS FOR LIGHT-DUTY DIESEL VEHICLES

Approaches to low emission levels for a light-duty diesel vehicle were studies according to the 1975 FTP using a Toyota Land Cruiser. It is concluded that the primary target of HC 0.41, CO 3.4, nitrogen oxide 1.0 g/mile could be achieved by engine modifications and appropriate transmission and final gear ratio choice for the 4,000 lb class vehicle with some penalty in power and fuel economy. However, the ultimate target of HC 0.41, CO 3.4, nitrogen oxide g/mile is impossible to be achieved for the 4,000 lb class vehicle. /GMRL/
