Evaporative emissions from gasoline vehicles are controlled by the use of charcoal canisters. The Sealed Housing for Evaporative Determinations (SHED) test was developed to measure vehicle evaporative emissions. This test is used to confirm canister effectiveness in controlling evaporative emissions during simulated vehicle operation. A study conducted by the Department of Energy in 1980(1) with 10 percent methanol in gasoline raised concerns over whether methanol in gasoline reduces canister effectiveness. The purpose of this program was to design a laboratory bench-scale apparatus for evaluating the effects of a methanol-hydrocarbon blend on charcoal from evaporative emissions canisters.
