Abstract: Integrated air samples were obtained at seven small and six large service stations and two dealerships. These establishments were sampled during cold and warm weather operations for eight hours during each visit and time weighted average carbon monoxide concentrations were determined. Warm weather observations did not exceed United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration standard or National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommended standard. However, cold weather observations exceeded these levels 36% and 64% of the time, respectively. U. S. Environmental Protection Agency primary ambient air quality standards were exceeded 100% of the time during the cold weather periods and 57% of the time during warm weather periods.
