This report describes the laboratory effort to characterize regulated and unregulated exhaust emissions from ten 1978 and 1979 high mileage catalyst equipped gasoline automobiles which have been driven for approximately 50,000 miles. The ten automobiles were evaluated as-received and after a tune-up to manufacturer's specifications, over the Light-Duty Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the Highway Fuel Economy Driving Schedule (HFET). Exhaust constituents measured, in addition to the regulated emissions, include: aldehydes, particulates, sulfides, amines, metals, and several additional elements and compounds. Additional evaluations involved the measurement of the regulated emissions over four short-test procedures.
