Outdoor smog chamber experiments using automobile exhaust were performed in this study. The purpose of the study was to provide a data base that modelers could use to develop new, improved mechanisms for use in the Empirical Kinetics Modeling Approach (EKMA). Thirty-three dual smog chamber experiments were conducted. These included experiments (1) using exhaust from a 1979 Plymouth Volare or a 1972 Dodge Charger, (2) comparing exhaust from two cars using the same gasoline, (3) comparing synthetic auto exhaust with real auto exhaust, and (4) comparing auto exhaust from premium and regular gasoline. Mass spectrometry and high resolution gas chromatography were used to quantify the initial concentration of the auto exhaust organic species.
