                                Staff Report

                                July 20, 1981
Evaluation of the R.C. Enterprises Inc. "Mr. Mizer","Mr. Gas Mizer"
Water injection system in accordance with Section 2222, Title 13
of the California Administrative Code.

I.    INTRODUCTION

      R. C. Enterprises Inc. of Twinsberg, Ohio has applied for exemption

from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code
(V.C.) for a device called the Mr. Mizer or Mr. Gas Mizer.     Exemption

is being sought for all carburetor equipped engines.     The device was

evaluated on the basis of compliance with established design quidelines.

II.   DEVICE DESCRIPTION AND FUNCTION

      The "Mr. Mizér“ consists of a water reservoir fitted with an adjust—
able aspirator valve on the top.     This aspirator functions in a manner

similar to a paint spray gun.     A small plastic tube (1/8" 0.D0.) connects

the "Mr. Mizer" to the engine intake manifold.     The water and air mixture

is drawn through this tube into the engine by engine vacuum.     The flow rate

is limited by an 0.0178 inch orifice molded into one end of the tubing.

The air/water ratio is controlled by an adjustment screw on the air bleed

which is similar in appearance and function to a carburetor idle screw.

III. BENFICIAL CLAIMS

      The applicant claims that the "Mr. Mizer" will:

      A.    "Increase the number of miles you will get out of each gallon".

      B:;   "Eliminate pinging and dieseling".


      C.    "Increase horsepower, double spark plug life and reduce

           carbon deposits".

      D.   "Allow you to use regular or unleaded gas instead of premium".

The staff make no evaluation of the merit of these claims.

IV.   DEVICE EVALUATION

      No emissions testing was conducted upon the Mr. Mizer by either the

ARB or the applicant.     The device, as originally submitted, was found by

the ARB staff to have the potential of allowing excessive amounts of air/

water mixture to flow into the engine.     The applicant agreed to experiment

with a restrictor orifice for California models.     The following day the

applicant reported that installing the 0.0178" orifice had improved the

adjustibility of the device, and that it would be incorporated in all

Mr. Mizer and Mr. Gas Mizer devices sold nationally.     The addition of an

orifice of less than .022 inches diameter brings the Mr. Mizer within the
limits of our design criteria gudieline.

V.    ©CONCLUSIONS

      The staff finds no evidence to indicate that the "Mr. Mizer" or

"Mr. Gas Mizer" water injection system will have a significant adverse

effeét upon emissions from a motor vehicle.

      Because of the lack of any significant adverse emissions effect the

staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—118 exempting the Mr. Mizer

or Mr. Gas Mizer from the prohibitions of VC 27156 be granted.
