             with a 97 CID, four cylinder, gasoline powered, fuel injected,
             transverse mounted engine with an odometer reading of 4037 miles.
             The tests were performed at Olson Engineering, Inc., Huntington
             Beach, California.

             The tests yielded the following results:

         IV. Haagen-Smit Laboratory Test Results
             Since the Olson Laboratory had no control of the vehicle between
             the baseline test and the after-conversion tests, the staff had no
             way of knowing what was done to the vehicle between the tests. The
             staff therefore requested the Haagen-Smit Laboratory to perform a
             confirmatory after-conversion test. The results of this test is as

                                                               Exhaust Emissions ( g l m i )
