The introduction of more volatile gasolines to provide good cold-starting and warm-up characteristics brought with it the introduction of problems not previously encountered.
This paper deals with the effect of such variables as fuel volatility, air temperature, and humidity, which were studied under carefully controlled conditions. All tests were conducted in the laboratory, since only in this way could precise control of temperature and humidity be accomplished.
