Carbon monoxide issue

We fully agree with your comments (OGJ, Mar. 27, 2000, p. 25), except to observe that the wintertime carbon monoxide needs are not really a "smaller program."Since most of the CO-noncompliance areas have overlapped the RFG regions, the separate oxygenated gasoline demand has appeared to be minimal. However, if RFG had no oxygenates, then the oxygenated gasoline program would become much more evident. We calculate that this could amount to about 21% of the gasoline pool in the winter, for a 17% yearly average. (The seasonality is somewhat masked by Minnesota's year-round requirement.) The need for oxygen as such in RFG is debatable, but it is surely needed for carbon monoxide abatement...
