EVALUATION OF RESTORATIVE MAINTENANCE ON 1977 LIGHT-DUTY VEHICLES IN DENVER, CO

Emission and fuel economy tests were performed on a sample of forty-two individually-owned 1977 model-year light-duty vehicles in the Denver metropolitan area. Vehicles manufactured by Chrysler Corporation, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corporation were represented somewhat equally. The purpose of these tests was to investigate emission and fuel economy performance of typical in-use passenger cars and to quantify the individual and combined effects of any observable defects, disablement and/or maladjustments on exhaust emissions and fuel economy.
