The report combines the data from two previous work assignments conducted at Southwest Research Institute for the Environmental Protection Agency, and analyzes the resulting data set. When possible, the combined results have been generalized in order to draw conclusions. In the first work assignment, vapors from twelve gasolines and gasoline/alcohol blends were analyzed for butanes, total hydrocarbons, methanol, and appropriate cosolvent alcohols. The analyses were conducted in duplicate for each fuel at FTP diurnal SHED temperatures (60-84 F) and at typical hot soak temperatures (160 + or - 10 F). The fuels were prepared with different levels of aromatic content and Reid Vapor Pressure. The second work assignment study involved generating vapors from seven gasolines and gasoline/alcohol blends during simulated diurnal test conditions (15-40 F, 35-60 F, and 60-84 F). These vapors were analyzed for total hydrocarbons, alcohols, and individual hydrocarbons up to and including C6. The Reid Vapor Pressure of the seven fuels varied from 9.2 to 15.0 psi.
