EPA Urges Gas Vaporization Cut

July 22, 1987|United Press International

WASHINGTON — EPA chief Lee Thomas today proposed requiring gasoline refiners to reduce the volatility of motor fuel sold during the summer months--from May 16 to Sept. 15--to help reduce air pollution.

He said the proposed requirement, along with new controls on all motor vehicles to prevent the escape of gasoline fumes during refueling--already required in California--could reduce the release of smog-causing ozone by as much as 10% nationwide.
