This report describes the laboratory effort to characterize regulated and unregulated exhaust emissions from a 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit operating on Amoco Indolene gasoline and five alternate-source fuels or fuel blends. These five alternate-source fuels included Mobil MTG gasoline, Simulated Coal gasoline, EDS Naphtha blend, Sasol blend (lead chemically removed), and H-Coal Naphtha blend. The test vehicle was operated 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, included aldehydes and ketones, particulate, individual hydrocarbons, sulfate ammonia, cyanide, organic amines, organic sulfides, phenols, nitrosamines, benzo(a)-pyrene and major elements in particulate.
