This report describes evaporative emission tests that were conducted on a 14-vehicle Department of Energy (DOE) fleet currently under test at Southwest Research Institute. Seven vehicles were accumulating mileage on an unleaded control fuel and seven vehicles were accumulating mileage on an alcohol blend containing 4 percent methanol, 2 percent ethanol and 2 percent t-butyl alcohol (TBA). Alcohol speciation of evaporative emission hydrocarbons was conducted on selected tests using the alcohol-containing fuel. In addition, a 'Matched blend' gasoline was prepared so that the front-end volatility index (FEVI) was equivalent to the FEVI of the control fuel.
