Two Wankel-powered passenger cars were purchased by the U.S. Army to evaluate the rotary engine for military application. The evaluation includes driveability, fuel economy, exhaust emissions, and durability. This report deals with the emissions measurement portion of the evaluation. The test cars were the Mazda R100 with a 60 cu. in. rotary engine, and the NSU Ro80, with a 995 cc rotary engine. Testing was accomplished using the 1975 Federal Test Procedure with the inertial set at 2250 lbs. for the Mazda and 3000 lbs. for the NSU. Test data, which is tabulated, indicate that more tests should have been run to provide a solid baseline from which to begin the 50,000-mile durability. None of the tests approach 1975 or 1976 required levels. However relatively low levels of oxides of nitrogen were achieved.
