The report provides results of analyses for alcohol content, volatility, and other properties of forty in-use unleaded gasoline samples. Analyses conducted on these fuels included: methanol, ethanol, and tertiary butyl alcohol (TBA) quantitation; Reid vapor pressure; distillation; water and lead content; and the calculation of FEVI and EI volatility indices. Twenty-two of the forty samples contained between three and five percent methanol. Most of the gasoline samples, including those not containing methanol, contained several percent TBA. Data obtained indicated the volatility of fuels containing methanol and TBA were not significantly different from that of fuels containing only TBA. The data also showed an average RVP of 13.3 and 13.6 psi respectively for these fuels, which, is above the maximum ASTM specified RVP of 11.5 psi for the Houston area at the time these samples were taken.
