The primary goal of inspection and maintenance (I/M) programs is to improve air quality by reducing emissions from motor vehicles. Many studies have indicated that I/M programs will achieve this goal. In addition several studies have indicated that fuel economy improvement can be expected to occur as a result of maintenance performed on vehicles failing an I/M test. Most studies which have been performed have looked at pre-1975 model year vehicles and have had expert mechanics performing the maintenance work. It is the intention of the present report to consider both the results from past studies and the results from more recent studies in order to provide EPA's best estimates of fuel economy benefit which can be attributed to I/M maintenance.
