              Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                          of the Vehicle Code


                        THE ENGINE SAVER DEVICE


Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section
27156 of the Yehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515
and 39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—5;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLYED:   That the installation of the Engine Saver
device manufactured by Mr. Stanley Chial, 1107 Curtiss Avenue, No. 1,
San Jose, CA 95125, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of
required motor vehicle pollution control devices and, therefore, is
exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for
1982 and older model year vehicles with conventional vacuum—operated PCV
systems.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions
for this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as
exempted by the Air Resources Board, that adversely affect the performance
of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
Order .                                     >

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application
other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless
prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.   Exemption of a
kit shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer for sale or
advertise any component of a kit as an individual device,.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect
that the use of this device may have on any warranty either expressed
or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ZNY QTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESQURCES BOARD OF
ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY
ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE ENGINE SAVER DEVICE.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by Air Resources Board" may be
made with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other
oral or written communication.

                              Staff Report

Evaluation of the "Engine Saver" for Exemption from the Prohibitions
in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code in Accordance with Section 2222,
Title 13, of the California Administrative Code



I.    INTRODUCTION

      Mr. Stanley M. Chial has requested exemption from the prohibitions

in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the Engine Saver device.      This device

is intended for use on vehicles with conventional vacuum—operated

PCY systems and is designed to entrap oil particles mixed among the

blow—by gases.

II.   DEVICE DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

      The Engine Saver device consists of a one—quart glass jar and an

aluminum Tid with two ports for connection through rubber hoses to

the engine‘s PCV system (see Figure 1).      An "0" ring is provided to

ensure leakproof sealing between the lid and the jar.

      In operation the blow—by gases (mixed with small amounts of oil

particles) are drawn through the device into the intake manifold.         The

inertia of the heavier oil particles and the manner in which the inlet

and outlet ports are situated cause the oil particles to separate from

the blow—by gases and to settle in the bottom of the jar.      The entrapped

oil is later discarded.


III. DEVICE EVALUATION
      Neither the applicant nor the ARB performed exhaust emissions

tests on vehicles equipped with the Engine Saver device.     However,

the ARB did perform a bench test to determine if the device would

have any air leaks when vacuum was applied to its connection ports.

      The ARB has evaluated more than a half dozen devices which operate

on the same principle as the Engine Saver device.     The purpose of such

devices is to remove the oil particles in the blow—by gas and to lessen

the chances of,gy]fnder‘misfire due to oil fouling of the spark

plugs.     The value of these devices is, therefore, dependent upon the

condition of the engine; i.e., the amount of oil in the blow—by gases.

      The ARB‘s bench test of the Engine Saver resulted in several

changes by the device manufacturer to correct poor sealing of the

device.     The revisions included a larger diameter (3/16") "0" ring,

chamfering the lTid edge for better contact with the "0" ring, and

smaller diameter hose connection ports.     A bench test after all

the above changes showed leakproof operation of the device under

prevailing maximum engine manifold vacuum conditions.

IV.      CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

      It is the staff‘s opinion that the Engine Saver device in its

present configuration after revisions would not leak and cause any

adverse emission problems.

      The staff recommends, therefore, that the Engine Saver device

be exempted from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California

Vehicle Code for 1982 and older model year vehicles with conventional

vacuum—operated PCV systems.
