Section 211 of the Clean Air Act requires that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) play a key role in the introduction of new motor vehicle fuels. The Emission Control Technology Division (ECTD), of the Office of Mobile Sources, EPA assesses technology that could be used to reduce mobile source emissions, including evaluation of alternate-fueled vehicles. A turbocharged Nissan Sentra was emission tested at the U.S. EPA Motor Vehicle Emissions Laboratory located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This vehicle was designed by Nissan to operate on M85 (85 percent methanol/15 percent gasoline) fuel. The vehicle's chassis is a late-1986 configuration while the engine is based on a 1983 1.3-liter design. The report includes individual test results using methanol vehicle procedures, calculation of exhaust emissions, and individual test results using gasoline vehicle procedures.
