But the actual figures determined by More accurate testing procedures Are 4.6 Grams of hydrocarbon and 47 Grams of Carbon monoxide Middleton said Middleton weakened the cur Jinni standards 60 per cent for Carbon monoxide and 10 per cent for hydrocarbons and gave a Auto manufacturers until 1972 to meet them a despite the higher figures the actual Quantity of pollutants emitted by cars complying with the proposed 1972 regulations will be less than some 1979 cars that comply with current regulations Quot he said this results because the much improved Quot measurement capabilities of the proposed 1972 procedures produces considerably higher readings for Given quantities of emissions Middleton explained.
