The document presents the major results of recent studies and evaluations made by the Environmental Protection Agency of the feasibility, emission reduction effectiveness, and costs of the various 'hardware' approaches to in-use vehicle emission control. These include programs of periodic inspection and maintenance of vehicles to minimize excessive emissions that result from inadequate or improper vehicle maintenance; the retrofitting of emission control systems to vehicles not originally so equipped, or the installation of more effective emission control systems on already-controlled vehicles; and the conversion of motor vehicles to permit their operation using gaseous fuels.
