This paper outlines reasons for emission legislation in Europe, makes comparisons with the United States where appropriate, and describes the pace and extent of existing and proposed legislation. It draws attention to variations that exist within the European continent due to national influences. The effect of legislation on the plans of the automotive and petroleum industries is discussed, and the effect of low-lead and unleaded fuel on performance of both existing and projected engines is considered. An attempt is made to assess the effect of all influences on the North American and European automotive industries and to forecast the general trend in automotive and fuel related developments in Europe over the next 10 years.
