This report documents the final year of a three year study of hydrocarbon emissions during the refueling of passenger vehicles. The objective of the third year was the development of a mathematical model for estimating the total hydrocarbon losses from refueling operations for an air quality control region over a specified period of time. In order that the model could be used readily by community planners and others it was based on relatively easily obtained variables such as average Reid vapor pressure of the gasolines used in the region and average underground fuel and ambient temperature.
