This study was investigated the estimation of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) emission from a gas station tank. To improve the atmosphere environmental quality near the gas station, the installation of vapor recovery system has been expanded recently. Therefore, it was necessary to calculate VOCs emissions from the gas station tank with vapor recovery systems for evaluation of their performance. The VOCs emissions are difficult to measure directly because of various sources and irregularly emission by pressure rise. In this study, VOCs emissions were estimated by simple calculation based on the equation of state for measured pressure, temperature and volume of a gasoline tank at a gas station. The result confirmed that the present national emission factor did not have significant discrepancy with the calculated value.
