Project at a Glance
Project Status: complete
Title: Quantification of evaporative running losses from light duty gasoline powered trucks
Principal Investigator / Author(s): McClement, Dennis
Contractor: Automotive Testing Laboratories, Inc.
Contract Number: A992-224
Research Program Area: Emissions Monitoring & Control
Topic Areas: Mobile Sources & Fuels
The purpose of this effort was to collect Running Loss Emission Data on a representative cross section of in-use, light-duty trucks to support the development of California specific emission factors. Eighteen randomly procured vehicles were tested. A total of 76 sequences were performed. Tests were performed using fuels at 9.0 psi RVP, ambient temperatures of 45, 95 and 105įF, and the LA-4 and NYCC driving sequences. Modified SHED sequences were performed on six vehicles. Results were consistent with previous studies.
