The auto/oil air quality improvement research program objective is to conduct a research and testing program to develop data on the potential reductions in vehicle emissions and improvements in air quality from reformulated gasoline, various alternative fuels and developments in automotive technology. SP-1000 reports some of the work of the work from phase II which involves further study of important gasoline parameters identified in phase I (SP-920) and evaluation of future vehicle technology. Contents include: fuel effects in auto/oil high emitting vehicles; fuel composition effects on automotive fuel economy; a sampling system for the measurement of precatalyst emissions from vehicles operating under transient conditions; heavy hydrocarbon/volatility study: fuel blending and analysis; cooperative study to evaluate a standard test method for the speciation of gasolines by capillary gas chromatography; effects of fuel properties on mass exhaust emissions during various modes of vehicle operation; effects of gasoline sulfur level on exhaust mass and speciated emissions: the question of linearity; and effects of fuel sulfur content on predicted ozone for years 2005/2010.
