The purpose of this report is to present an updated assessment of the fuel economy benefits of Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) programs, in terms of individual vehicle and fleetwide savings, using the latest EPA test data. The fuel economy benefits which will result from a basic I/M program and the incremented benefits due to adding options to the basic program are presented. The basic of 'typical' I/M program analyzed is an annual one with idle emissions inspections of all gasoline powered passenger cars of model years 1968 and newer. The three options which are analyzed are a more effective test for 1981 and later vehicles, a mechanic training program, and a tire pressure check conducted as part of the I/M inspection.
