A modeling study conducted to investigate the vapor intrusion potential of MTBE, TAME, and ETBE indicated that MTBE is much more likely to cause vapor intrusion problems than TAME and ETBE. The authors' findings led them to recommend that EPA consider including the field measurement data of synthetic fuel additives in the existing Petroleum Vapor Intrusion Database.
