This paper analyzes the effect on fuel economy of emission controls on autombiles. The analysis examines the various vehicle design factors, including emission control devices, which affect motor vehicle fuel economy and discusses the impact of the individual variables. Fuel penalties which may be associated with emission control systems are placed into the perspective of other fuel penalties which are currently, or may in the future, be experienced by the motoring public.
