The levels of organic carbon in the exhaust aerosol are consistent with the levels measured for engines running on hydrocarbon fuels, which verifies earlier work suggesting that the OC in engine exhaust is mainly derived from oils (Sakurai et al., 2003). The data also confirm two earlier hypotheses (Miller, 2005): 1) That metal-rich nanoparticles will form in the relative absence of soot, 2) That the large metal-rich spheres found in engine exhaust are indeed derived from lube oil.
