As part of a program to develop methods for measuring exhaust emissions from alternate powerplants for automobiles, tests were conducted on two Rankine cycle power plants installed in chassis, and designated as: SE101 and SE124. The SE124 engine uses a double acting, double expansion V-2 expander with a displacement of 124 cubic inches and is mounted in a 1969 Chevelle sedan. The SE101 uses a 1969 Pontiac Grand Prix body. The expander is an in-line four cylinder, single stage, single acting engine of 101 cu. in. displacement. The 1972 Federal Test Procedure was followed as closely as possible, however, certain deviations were made in the test procedure because of the nature of these unconventional engines. Exhaust samples were measured for CO, CO2, NO, NO(x), and hydrocarbons. Fuel consumption was determined. The results are discussed and tabulated. Neither car met the 1975 exhaust emission standards according to results from the hot start and cold start tests.
