Six vehicles that have achieved the Federal research objective emission levels at low mileage are described. Two vehicles have completed 50,000 miles of durability below the .41/3.4/.41 g/mi levels. Two vehicles failed these emission levels by 10,000 miles. There is a loss in fuel economy of about 7% and the driveability ranged from non-commercial to borderline commercial. The ongoing program objectives are to reduce the sensitivity of these systems to emission deterioration and driveability defects and to reduce the fuel economy losses.
