The purpose of the report was to investigate the effect on evaporative emissions of mileage accumulation with a gasoline/methanol/cosolvent splash blend versus mileage accumulation with the base gasoline. The test program was carried out under EPA contract 68-03-3192 with Southwest Research Institute. Evaporative emission tests were conducted on a 14-vehicle fleet undergoing driveability testing for the Department of Energy at Southwest Research Institute. Seven vehicles accumulated mileage on an unleaded control fuel, and seven vehicles accumulated mileage on a gasoline-alcohol blend containing four percent methanol, two percent ethanol and two percent t-butyl alcohol (TBA). The results of the tests are summarized within the report. Also included are recommendations for additional research.
