The Emission Factor Program provides a realistic assessment of the effectiveness of Federal regulations by testing production vehicles in the hands of the motoring public. This report summarizes the results of the FY 74 Emission Factor Program and compares these results with those obtained in the FY 71, FY 72 and FY 73 Emissions Factor Programs. The FY 74 Program tested a sample of 1965-1975 model year vehicles in seven cities. (Portions of this document are not fully legible).

Contents Notes
The Environmental Protection Agency has recognized that a realistic assessment of the effectiveness of Federal air pollution regulations requires the measurement of emissions from production vehicles in the hands of the motoring public. Accordingly, the Emission Factor Program has been developed to obtain this needed information by testing fleets of consumer-owned vehicles in major cities. This report summarizes the results of the FY74 Emission Factor Program and compares these results iwth those obtained in the FY71, FY72, and FY73 Emission Factor Programs. HC, CO and NOX emissions are summarized in terms of both arithmetic and geometric means and standard deviations and fuel economy is summarized in terms of harmonic means and standard deviations. Summaries are presented for each city and model year combination, for each manufacturer for 1975 model year vehicles and for the results of highway fuel economy tests, low and high speed transient cycle tests and for loaded vehicle tests.
