1975 CRC FUEL RATING PROGRAM: ROAD OCTANE PERFORMANCE IN 1975 MODEL CARS, 1977
The CRC-Motor Road TEst Group periodically conducts programs to investigate the relationship between the laboratory properties of a set of motor gasolines and the road octane performance of these fuels in a selected group of cars. Because of the wide use of catalytic converters in the exhaust system and associated engine changes in 1975 model cars, their road octane response to fuel variables may differ appreciably from that observed in 1971 and 1973 models. Therefore, this program was undertaken evaluate the effects of fuel variables on road antiknock performance in 1975 model cars.
