Determination of Alternative Fuels Combustion Products: Phase 3 Report

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


This report describes the laboratory efforts to characterize particulate and gaseous exhaust emissions from a passenger vehicle operating on alternative fuels. Tests were conducted at room temperature (nominally 72 deg F) and 20 deg F utilizing the chassis dynamometer portion of the Federal Test Procedure for light-duty vehicles. Fuels evaluated included Federal reformulated gasoline, liquefiedpetroleum gas, a national average blend of compressed natural gas, E85 and M85.
