The report describes emission testing conducted at the EPA Motor Vehicle Emission Laboratory on two turbocharged Buick Regals which were converted to use M-85 fuel (methanol). These vehicles which were converted to use methanol fuel have the potential to create a consumer interest in methanol-fueled or flexible-fueled vehicles due to the increase performance possible when using methanol fuel in a turbocharged engine.
