Experimental data were obtained in dynamometer tests of automotive engines used in the United States. The objective of this program is to obtain engine performance data for determining fuel consumption and emissions (carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and oxides of nitrogen) at steady-state engine operation modes. Each engine was tested over its entire speed/load operating range. The test results proved to have sufficient repeatability to establish steady-state maps for fuel consumption and emissions over the entire operating range of the engine. These data are useful for estimation of full economy and emissions for engineering calculations involving ground transportation.
