This report summarizes a test program which was designed to evaluate various exhaust catalysts at low mileage on a pure methanol-fueled Volkswagen Rabbit automobile. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and formaldehyde emissions were measured to identify which catalysts are the best candidates for durability testing in a later program. Catalysts formulations that are eventually selected for durability testing should cost no more, and preferably less, than the original catalyst on the vehicle. In addition, all catalysts should provide the capability to meet the Federal Exhaust Emission Standards for hydrocarbon (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxide (NOx).
