    The immediate effects of methanol-gasoline blends on vehicle emissions, fuel economy, and driveability were investigated. The addition of a mixture of methyl and butyl alcohols to gasoline, to provide a total alcohol concentration of either 10 percent or 18 percent, resulted in higher evaporative emissions, lower carbon monoxide emissions, lower volumetric fuel economy, and poorer. 1.

    While this was going on, scientists within the industry were noting what sacrifices in performance were needed to achieve these levels, and one of these was fuel economy. When the fuel crisis of developed, the question of the deleterious effect of emission control on fuel economy was raised more sharply than before, and a public debate. Understanding the potential of these combustion modes—as well as understanding emissions and emissions control challenges and fuel technologies opportunities—forms the foundation of much of the fuels, engines, and emissions research at ORNL and builds upon more than two .

Diesel-powered vehicles have demonstrated a percent fuel economy advantage over their gasoline counterparts. The fuel economy figures used to determine the Gas Guzzler Tax are different from the fuel economy values provided on this web site and in the Fuel Economy Guide. The tax does not depend on the actual on-the-road fuel economy, which may be more or less than the EPA published value for some drivers.

The conventional wisdom is that there is no relationship between fuel economy and motor vehicle emissions, at least for new cars. The requirement that all vehicles meet a common emission standard in terms of grams per mile effectively breaks whatever link there might have been between fuel economy and emissions in uncontrolled (preregulatory) by: Masaaki Okubo, Takuya Kuwahara, in New Technologies for Emission Control in Marine Diesel Engines, Fuel and related environmental issues.

Emission control technologies can be classified into fuel pretreatment, combustion improvement, and exhaust gas aftertreatment. Fuel pretreatment is the reduction of the causes that lead to the emergence of pollutants in fuel. The energy required for emission control often reduces vehicle fuel economy and increases vehicle cost.

VTO's Emission Control R&D focuses on developing efficient, durable, low-cost emission control systems that complement new combustion strategies while minimizing efficiency losses.

The fuel economy data obtained from the emission tests run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have been used to show passenger car fuel economy trends from model year to present. This paper adds the model year to the historical trend and concentrates on comparisons between the and by: 9.

Concern about the reduced availability and the increased cost of petroleum fuels prompted great efforts in recent years to reduce the fuel consumption of auto mobiles. The ongoing efforts to reduce fuel consumption have addressed many relevant factors, including increased engine performance, reduced friction, use of lightweight materials, and reduced aerodynamic drag.

Emission control system, in automobiles, means employed to limit the discharge of noxious gases from the internal-combustion engine and other components. There are three main sources of these gases: the engine exhaust, the crankcase, and the fuel tank and carburetor. Contributions by Surhid Gautam and Lit-Mian Chan.

This book presents a state-of-the art review of vehicle emission standards and regulations and provides a synthesis of worldwide experience with vehicle emission control technologies and their applications in both industrial and developing countries.

Topics covered include: * The two principal international systems of vehicle emission standards /5(3). United States: Heavy-Duty Vehicles: GHG Emissions & Fuel Economy. Background; CO 2 and Fuel Consumption Standards; N 2 O and CH 4 Emission Standards; Other Provisions; Background.

US GHG emissions and fuel efficiency standards for heavy- and medium-duty vehicles have been jointly developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety. The Vehicle Technologies Office is supporting research to greatly improve the fuel efficiency and reduce the emissions produced by both light and heavy-duty vehicles.

It also supportswhich provides consumers with the fuel economy of all vehicles back toas well as tips to help drivers save money and fuel. California's emissions standards are stricter than the federal EPA requirements. They're more stringent on hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions -- which become smog-- from vehicles, and they have heavier requirements that older construction vehicles be retrofitted so that they operate rnia's gasoline also has less sulfur, benzene and hydrocarbons than most gasoline sold.

Volume One: Emission Control and Fuel Economy Between The new servo valve facilitate the precise control of fuel quantities injected into the combustion chamber. Through this eight consecutive injections with accurate metering is achieved.

The “Injection Rate Shaping” (IRS) injection mode results in better combustion control. Through that Noise reduction, Emission control and Fuel efficiency. Also, there is an increase in fuel economy. The control could vary from a simple switch, as in the case of the electric type, to a series of vacuum lines and a control valve.

A malfunctioning E.F.E. control negatively impacts driveability, emissions, and fuel economy. An E.F.E. system may also negatively impact these three if the system fails. The Obama administration fuel economy plan called for a doubling in fuel economy for new cars and light trucks, to more than 50 miles per US gallon ( L/ km; 60 mpg ‑imp) byequivalent to a real-world average of 36 miles per US gallon ( L/ km; 43 mpg ‑imp).

In Aprilsaying "those standards are inappropriate and. relation between emissions of the three major emitted species: HC, NO*, and CO. We also examine the frequency distribution of the emissions since this distribution affects estimates of automotive emissions for an area with a given car population.

Finally, we explore the relationship be-tween fuel economy and car weight and fuel economy and. An emission performance standard is a limit that sets thresholds above which a different type of vehicle emissions control technology might be needed. While emission performance standards have been used to dictate limits for conventional pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen and oxides of sulphur (NO x and SO x), this regulatory technique may be used to regulate greenhouse gasses, particularly.

Emission standards for criteria pollutants (CO, HC, NOx, PM)—Arguably, clean emissions were the most important driving factor through to about Regulations for greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy—First standards and/or mandatory targets became effective in the United States and in Japan in the mids.

Consequently large gains in tailpipe pollution control and relatively minor fuel economy gains yield a roughly split of damages between greenhouse gases and conventional pollutants on average for model year
