Abstract
This report examines the effect of misfueling on late model year vehicles. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Motor Vehicle Emission Laboratory (MVEL) set up a test program with a contractor to perform the above task. Five motor vehicles from 1981 and 1982 model years with mileage accumulations from 15,000 and 25,000 were selected. All vehicles were driven the average of 25,000 miles and tested over the Federal Test Procedure, the Highway Fuel Economy Test and several short tests. The total amount of leaded fuel and the amount of lead in the fuel was also mesured.
