EXHAUST EMISSIONS AND FUEL CONSUMPTION OF A HEAVY-DUTY GASOLINE POWERED VEHICLE OVER VARIOUS DRIVING CYCLES - 361 CUBIC INCH 1966 FORD F-600

This report contains the results of exhaust emission tests on one precontrolled heavy-duty gasoline truck. These tests were run on a chassis dynamometer over various cycles developed under the CAPE-21 cycle generation program. This effort is a continuation of the test program which initially examined a 1977 GMC truck; it was designed to answer some questions which developed during that testing. This test sequence was designed to investigate in more detail the effect of various driving cycles upon vehicle emissions and fuel consumption. For this reason, road load drag force was not varied as in the previous experiment. For each driving cycle three tests were run with the vehicle in a fully warmed-up condition. Also, for this test sequence, several new cycles were generated which had not been run during the previous test sequence on the GMC truck. (See Technical Support Report for Regulatory Action, Exhaust Emissions and Fuel Consumption of a Heavy-Duty Gasoline Powered Vehicle over Various Driving Cycles, 427 Cubic Inch 1977 California GMC 6500, June 1978). The final phase was a sequence of four tests to investigate cold and warm start effects.
