California (became the nation's testing ground by virtue of an Aiprll decision by William D. Rucfcels'haus," the former administrator of the Environmental (Protection Agency. In granting the automakers a one- year delay in meeting emission standards for 1975, he set up. .interim standards—ofte set.for California and 1 the other for the 49 remaining states.

But Ford has a 450-car test fleet and GM is putting more than 250 cars Oft the road to find out if the Rfflog ^ionlToi devices work. One thing that will ruin them is Jeaded gasoline. It "poisons" the catalyst, making it useless in controlling 'emissions. A "poisoned'* catalyst won't hurt the operation of the oar, In fact, the driver probably wouldn't know the difference. But unseen pollutants—supposed to be eliminated by the $300 device—will escape into the air. Ford's 1973 Galaxle 500 sedans are being driven by the federal General Services Ad ministration, the state of California and McDonnell Douglas Corp.

By 1976, the entire U.S. production of new cars may be catalytic converter-equipped. The major oil companies already are gearing up to meet the government's July .1, 1974, deadline for lead-free, fuel gasOline to be available nationwide. About 250,000 of the nation's 350,000 retail gasoline outlets are affected by the law, which requires a lead-free pltrhp at any station that pumps 200,000 gallons of fuel or rrtOre a year. •'• .

A Jensen, director of Ford's Automotive Emissions Office, questions the availability of unleaded gasoline, pointing but that a 200,000-gallon sales volume could exceed the annual sales of all gas stations in a particular rural area.
