    Abstract

    The technique of three-dimensional fluorescence, first used in the forensic science analysis of motor oils and auto lubricants, is evaluated in the study of gasoline samples taken straight from the pump. The study includes ten samples of different grades and brands. No common spectral features attributable to brand or grade type could be shown. A program designed to determine the similarities or differences between two three-dimensional plots is employed to determine if two samples of gasoline could have a common source.
