Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the driving habits and vehicle maintenance patterns of individuals who report symptoms when exposed to methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) and those who are asymptomatic when exposedto the oxygenate. Participants were healthy volunteers (CON) and self-reported MTBE - sensitive individuals ( SRS) who participated in a controlled exposure study of MTBE in gasoline. A questionnaire was developed to gather information about each participant's automobile usage, engine maintenance habits and fueling and driving patterns. Results showed that the individualswho had self-reported heightened sensitivity to the oxygenate drove their vehicles more often and fueled their vehicles more frequently than asymptomatic individuals. In addition, the self- reported symptomatic individuals in this study were shown to be more likely to drive vehicles with some form of body damage and carbureted engines.
