Global Market Gasoline Quality Review: Five Year Trends in Particulate Emission Indices 2021-01-0623

A gasoline’s chemical composition impacts a vehicle’s sooting tendency and therefore has been the subject of numerous emissions studies. From these studies, several mathematical correlation equations have been developed to predict a gasoline’s sooting tendency in modern spark-ignited internal combustion engine vehicles. This paper reviews the recently developed predictive tool methods and summarizes five years of global market fuel survey data to characterize gasoline sooting tendency trends around the world. Additionally, the paper will evaluate and suggest changes to the predictive methods to improve emissions correlations.
