It also includes information on fuel specifications and characteristics.The report should be read in conjunction with the Appendix to Part 1 and Part 2,which was originally issued as a separate volume in 1997 (Report No. 6/97). There are now two editions of Part 2:
• Report No. 6/97, detailing the development of worldwide legislation and regulations governing motor vehicle emissions, fuel specifications and fuel consumption from 1970 to 1996.
