Abstract An evaluation was conducted of a 1969 Chevrolet Kingswood station wagon which had been modified by Auto-Mate Research Corporation. This test vehicle was equipped with a 350 CID, four barrel V-8 and an automatic transmission. Several devices were evaluated. The first device was an air bleed valve which caused an enleanment of the mixture during light load conditions. A fuel valve was installed between the fuel pump and the carburetor which continuously by-passed a portion of fuel pump discharge to the inlet side of the fuel pump. An electronic device attached to the fender of the vehicle was claimed to eliminate oxides of nitrogen emissions. Two Auto-Mate Research fuel additives, claimed to eliminate oxides of nitrogen emissions were evaluated. Both the 1972 and the 1975 Federal Test Procedures were used. The reductions in CO and HC and increases in NOx observed during the test of the air bleed and fuel valve are typical of devices that cause enleanment of the mixture. Results also indicate that the fuel valve also had an enleanment effect on the mixture.
