An evaluation program was conducted on a methanol-fueled AMC Gremlin which was built by Stanford University students and was named winner in the Liquid Fuel Division of the 1970 Clean Air Car Race. The use of methanol as a fuel is the basic technique used in the Stanford Gremlin for control of pollutant emissions. Carburetor jets were changed to furnish air-fuel ratios slightly on the lean side of stoichiometric. The intake manifold was modified to supply additional heat to the mixture. An Engelhard catalyst was placed about six inches downstream of the exhaust manifold. The test car was an American Motors Gremlin with a 232 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine and standard transmission. The results of the tests indicate that the use of methyl alcohol as fuel can result in very low emissions. The most noticeable change on this car was in the reduction of NO(x), when changing from gasoline to methanol.
