The exhaust emission characteristics of the 'Pollution Master' device on both controlled and uncontrolled vehicles were evaluated. The uncontrolled vehicle used was a 1963 Chevrolet V-8 with a manual transmission. The controlled vehicle was a 1968 Ford Falcon with a 200 cu. in. six cylinder engine and manual transmission. The 'Pollution Master' is a two part system containing an 'exhaust scavenger' and a 'crankcase scavenger.' The total effect of this device is to admit additional air to the manifold thus providing a leaner fuel-air mixture to the engine. For evaluation purposes, the Federal emission test procedures for certification of new cars for 1971 and the procedure for 1972 certification were used. The vehicle was tested alternately with 'Pollution Master' installed and with the vehicle returned to original condition. The results are presented and data is well tabulated.
