The College of Engineering - Center for Environmental Research and Technology is looking for gasoline vehicles for an emissions testing program at CE-CERT’s state-of-the-art Light-Duty Lab. The candidate vehicles are shown below:


  • 2018 Honda Fit (1.5L displacement, direct fuel injection-DFI)

  • 2018 Jeep Cherokee (2.4L displacement, sequential fuel injection-SFI)

  • 2017 Mazda 3 (2.0L displacement, direct fuel injection-DFI)

  • 2016 Toyota Prius (1.8L displacement, sequential fuel injection-SFI)

  • 2017 Ford F150 Pickup (3.5L displacement, direct fuel injection-DFI/ sequential fuel injection-SFI)

  • 2017 Chevrolet Spark (1.4L displacement, sequential fuel injection-SFI)

  • 2016 Nissan Rogue (2.5L displacement, sequential fuel injection-SFI)

  • 2018 Chevrolet Malibu (1.5L displacement, direct fuel injection-DFI)


Preference will be given to well-maintained vehicles (with 18,000 miles travelled at a minimum). The owner will be paid $350 per week during testing. The test program is conducted indoors at CE-CERT's Light-Duty Lab and it will last approximately 3 weeks for some vehicles or more for others. We will not modify the vehicles.

If you have the vehicles listed above and are interested in this, please feel free to contact us.
