* Carbon Monoxide * Nitrogen dioxide * Sulphur dioxide * Suspended particles including PM-10, particles less than 10 microns in size. * Benzene * Formaldehyde * Polycyclic hydrocarbons *Courtesy of http://www.nutramed.com/environment/carschemicals.htm

These components generally compose less than 10%. I am trying to discover what the proportions are of the remaining which include Nitrogen, Water Vapour, Carbon Dioxide.
