Five vehicles, a 1987 Ford Taurus, a 1996 Chrysler Concord, a 2001 Ford Focus (Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)), a 1993 Buick Regal, and a 2001 Dodge Intrepid (LEV) were tested using three different fuels: (1) winter grade (E-10) fuel containing 10% (vol.) 200 proof ethanol, (2) winter grade (WG) fuel without any ethanol or oxygen containing compounds, and (3) summer grade (SG) fuel without oxygenates. The vehicles were tested in the conditions in which they were obtained from either a private individual or a vehicle rental service. They were also tested in a simulated malfunction mode in which the oxygen sensor was disconnected.
