This report deals with the interrelationship of fuel characteristics and evaporative losses. The characteristics which are correlated to evaporative losses are Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP), the shape of a fuel's distillation curve and weathering. Evaluation of the effect on evaporative emission of RVP, distillation temperatures, and weathering has indicated some general trends. Correlations and engineering assumptions can be drawn, with reasonable accuracy, from fuel composition indicators such as RVP and distillation curves.
