The purpose of this document is to consolidate much of the existing data on gas phase hydrocarbon exhaust emissions from both gasoline vehicles and vehicles equipped with diesel engines. This subject is of interest because new studies have shown diesel emissions to contain compounds of high molecular weight. This high molecular weight component is dominated by particle-bound hydrocarbons; however, the potential health risk associated with heavy hydrocarbons merits examination of the gas phase as well. Particular emphasis will be placed on the comparison of emissions and their potential carcinogenicity. Other areas to be discussed include evaporative hydrocarbon emissions and the effect of fuel composition on gasoline gaseous hydrocarbon emissions.
