Abstract

Emissions from motorcycle contribute a significant portion in the air pollutant emission inventory in Taiwan. Exhaust from motorcycle strongly depends on engine type and fuel formulation. A study was conducted to investigate the effects of gasoline composition on the profiles of exhaust gas, including CO, NOx and hydrocarbon (HC), from a motorcycle engine dynamometer. Fuel with low content of sulfur and aromatics caused the lowest exhaust CO, HC, and NO emission factor among these testing fuels in both engine test modes. A reduction in gasoline sulfur content decreased CO emission in motorcycle engine idle, the reduction range was 32-41%. In engine running mode, reducing gasoline sulfur level might decrease CO emission also, but reduction percentage are less than in idle mode. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AWMA's 99th Annual Conference and Exhibition (New Orleans, LA 6/20-23/2006).
