The report describes the laboratory testing of nine in-use light-duty gasoline passenger cars using up to four PCV disablement configurations. The nine vehicles included 1975 to 1983 model years, with odometer readings generally between 20,000 and 60,000 miles. No two vehicles were identical in make and engine type, and engine displacements ranged from 89 to 403 cu in. The vehicles were tested over the 1975 Federal Test Procedure, with sampling for crankcase HC conducted during each individual cycle of the 3-bag FTP and during the 10-minute hot soak. Emissions of crankcase HC are provided in g/mi for the 3-bag FTP, and in g/min for the 10-minute soak.
