Abstract
An evaluation was conducted of the Stargas fuel additive to verify its influence on reduction of emissions and to establish the adequacy of the Federal Emission Test Procedure to measure the relatively small effects of a fuel modification of this sort. The Stargas additive was formulated to be used with unleaded gasolines. It was mixed in approximate proportions of eight ounces to fifty gallons of fuel. This modified fuel was used both for testing and for mileage accumulation. The vehicles used in the test program were a 1971 Ford Galaxie with a 351 CID engine and automatic transmission, and a 1970 Plymouth Valiant with a 225 CID engine and automatic transmission. Both vehicles were tested in the baseline condition on fuel without Stargas; then the vehicles were tested with no mileage accumulation with Stargas. The testing employed on both vehicles was the 1972 Federal Emission Test Procedure. Emission data from both vehicles became erratic after mileage accumulation on fuel containing Stargas. The emissions were generally worse with the additive than without, which discourages any further evaluation of Stargas.
