In order to evaluate the Universal Oil Products catalytic reactor, a 1970 Volkswagen Squareback with electronic fuel injection was used. This vehicle is equipped with a 98 cu. in. opposed 4 cylinder engine and automatic transmission. The stock fuel injection system was modified to prevent cutoff of fuel during deceleration and the catalyst unit was installed in place of the standard muffler. The following conclusions were drawn from the test results: (1) the vehicle supplied by Universal Oil Products for evaluation showed quite low exhaust emissions; (2) there appears to be an adverse effect on the early results caused by the conditioning of the vehicle prior to testing; (3) the vehicle failed to meet the 1975 exhaust emission standards; (4) the driveability of the vehicle as converted was acceptable.
