The report describes samples of in-use gasoline analyzed from a selection of gasoline outlets that were not major (national) brands. A total of 123 samples were obtained from three cities; Baltimore, Detroit, and Philadelphia. All samples were analyzed for Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP), distillation temperature curve, methanol, ethanol, tertiary butyl alcohol (TBA), water content, and lead content. In addition, the 'Evaporative Index' (EI) was calculated for each fuel.
