=U/ALUATION OF OLDE WORLDE‘S MILEAGE MAKER DEVICE FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE
mROHLISITIONS IHN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222,
TITLE 13 OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE


I.    INTRODUCTION

      Olde Worlde, Inc., of 401 Fraley Road, High Point, NC 27261 has requested

an exemption from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section 27156.

Tme applicant has requested that their "Mileage Maker" add—on device for

awtomobiles be exempted for 1980 and older model—year General Motors, Ford,

ard Chrysler vehicles powered by a six— or eight—cylinder carbureted engine.

Yzhicles equipped with three—way catalyst using open—loop or closed—loop

(computer controlled) carburetion system were excluded.

11.   CONCLUSION

      Based on the results from comparative exhaust emissions tests performed

by the applicant at an independent laboratory on two (a six—cylinder and an

eight—cylinder) 1980 model—year oxidation catalyst equipped vehicles, and from

confirmatory tests performed by the staff at the Air Resources Board (ARB)

facility on the eight—cylinder vehicle, and also based on an engineering

evaluation of the device, the staff concludes that the "Mileage Maker" will

 not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the vehicles for which exemption
 is requested.

 I1I. RECOMMENDATION

      The staff recommends that Olde Worlde, Inc. be granted an exemption for

 their "Mijleage Maker®" add—on device for 1980 and older model—year General

 Motors, Ford, and Chrysler vehicles powered by a six— or eight—cylinder

 carbureted engine.    The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—130 be

 adopted.


IV.   DEVICE DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

      The "Mileage maker" device is a combination of a water/vapor injector, a

fuel pressure regulator, a fuel heater, and an air conditioner compressor

cut—off switch.     The device is packaged with installation hardware and

instructions and sold as a kit.

      The water/vapor injector is designed to allow a preselected amount of

water/vapor into the engine through the positive crankcase ventilation (PCY)

system.   Water/vapor is drawn from a two liter plastic reservoir through a

0.25 inch I.0. plastic tubing which tees into the PCY system.     An air—stone

(as those found in home aquariums) at the end of the tubing and positioned in

the reservoir filters the water to prevent particulates from clogging the

device.   An 0.005 inch diameter capillary is positioned inside the plastic

tubing to reduce the effective cross—sectional area of the tubing and to limit

the amount of water flow,    A rotary clicking valve controls the amount of air

bleed.    The inlet air is mixed with the water to form water/vapor mist which
is then siphoned into the engine.

      The fuel heater and fuel pressure regulator are positioned in series

between the fue! pump and carburetor inlet.     The fuel heater consists of a

heat exchanger, a thermostat switch, and a solenoid valve.     When the fuel in

the thermostat chamber is below 120°F, the solenoid valve allows engine

coolant to flow through the heat exchanger and heats the fuel.     When the fuel

in the thermostat chamber reaches a température of 120°F, the solenoid valve

will be closed thus cutting off the flow of engine coolant to the heat
exchanger.   As fuel flows out of the heat exchanger, at a maximum temperature

of 120°F, the fuel passes through the fuel pressure requlator and into the

carburetor inlet.     Carburetor inlet fuel pressure is limited to 3.5 psi by the

design of the fuel pressure regulator.


     The air conditioner compressor cut—off switch consists of a manifold

vacuum switch which monitors engine vacuum drop during power demand periods.

When manifold vacuum drops below five inches of Hg. for six—cylinder vehicles

and seven inches of Hg. for eight—cylinder vehicles, the switch cuts off the

electrical current to the air conditioner compressor clutch, thus disengaging

the compressor and the complete air conditioning system.

     No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required, nor

permitted, when the "Mileage Maker" is installed.

     A schematic diagram of the "Mileage Maker" is shown in the Appendix

V.   EVALUATION

     Evaluation of the "Mileage Maker" consisted of comparative (stock vehicle

versus vehicle with device installed) exhaust emission tests of representative

vehicles on a chassis dynamometer and an engincering evaluation, by the staff,

of each component of the device.

     Two oxidation catalyst equipped 1980 Ford vehicles (a six—cylinder and an

eight—cylinder) were used for the exhaust emission tests.   A description of

each vehicle is given in the Appendix.   Each vehicle was subjected to the

following tests by the applicant:

     &    Baseline test (vehicle in stock configuration) with A/C off.

          Baseline test (vehicle in stock configuration) with A/C on.

     &    Device test (vehicle with "Mileage Maker" installed) with A/C on and

          water/vapor injector set to manufacturer‘s installation instructions.

     &    Device test simulating worst case condition (vehicle with "Mileage

          Maker" installed) with water/vapor injector set for maximum water

          flow and A/C on.


       The above tests on both vehicles were performed by FCI International

Testing Laboratory in Santa Ana, California, under contract by Olde Worlde,

Inc.

   .   In addition to the tests performed by the applicant, the ARB laboratory

in E1 Monte performed confirmatory tests on the eight—cylinder 1980 Ford

vehicle.     The vehicle was subjected to the following tests:

       .     Baseline test (vehicle in stock configuration) with A/C on.

             Device test (vehicle with "Mileage Maker" installed) with A/C on and

             water/vapor injector set to manufacturer‘s installation instructions.

       &     Device test simulating worst case condition (vehicle with "Mileage

             Maker" installed) with water/vapor injector set for maximum water

             flow and A/C on.

       The staff also performed an engineering evaluation on each component of

the "Mileage Maker", the water/vapor injector, the fuel pressure regulator,

the fuel heater, and the air conditioner compressor cut—off switch.        The

performance parameters, threshold points, and design specifications were

reviewed by the staff to determine if the individual components will have any

adverse effect on exhaust emissions from vehicles for which exemption is

requested.

VI.    TEST RESULTS

       The applicant‘s emissions test data in Tables 1 and 2 were generated

under contract by FCI International Testing Laboratory in Santa Ana,

California.

VII.     DISCUSSION

         Tables 1 and 2 show the applicant‘s data generated from two 1980

oxidation catalyst equipped Ford vehicles, a six—cylinder and an

eight—cylinder.       The baseline data for both vehicles (with A/C off mode) did

not meet the hydrocarbon emission standard of O.41 grams per mile.       Prior to

the installation of the device on the vehicle, the vehicle was diagnosed by a

qualified mechanic.       No abnormal conditions of the engine or the emission

controls were noted by the mechanic and the baseline data were accepted.

         A second baseTine ({with A/C on) was performed on both vehicles for the

evaluation of the device, since all device tests were performed with the ai;

conditioner on.       The device was installed as recommended by the manufacturer

 {device intact and Qater/vapor injector air bleed valve set at an opening of

one click per cylinder from complete close) and emission tested.       A second

device test was also performed simulating worst case condition of maximum

water flow into the engine.


      A comparison (baseline A/C on versus device as recommended and worst

case) of the exhaust emission results submitted by the applicant on both

vehicles indicates that the device did not have an adverse effect on exhaust

emissions from the vehicles tested.

      In addition to the tests performed by the applicant, the ARB laboratory

performed confirmatory tests at the ARB facility on the same Ford Granada test

vehicle.   The test program performed by the applicant was duplicated by the

staff, except for the baseTine with the afr conditioner off test which was

onitted.

      An analysis of the data in Table 3 indicates that the device did not

have a significant adverse effect on exhaust emission from the vehicle

tested.    The differences in laboratory results (linear shift in HC and NOx

values) may be attributed to the fact that the static ignition timing was

changed by the ARB personnel from 0° TDC to the OEM specifications of 6° BTDC

when the vehicle was received by the ARB.    The insignificant increase in CO

noted by the staff is unexplainable.    However, the extremely low baseline CO

value is questionable since an average CO value of 3.0 grams per mile was

noted on QuaTity Audit reports from a data bank of over 250 vehicles tested.

      In addition to the ARB confirmatory emission tests performed, the staff

evaluated the design parameters of each component {water/vapor injector, fuel

pressure regulator, fuel heater, and air conditioner compressor cut—off

switch) individually.    The applicant‘s submitted design parameters are as

follows:

            water/vapor injector — 0.0QS inch capillary which restricts water

            flow.


      &   fuel pressure regulator —~ maximum fuel pressure into carburetor

           inlet of 3.5 psi.

      »    fuel heater — maximum fue! temperature of 120°F into carburetor

           inlet.

      &    air conditioner compressor cut—off switch — interruption of voltage

           to air conditioner compressor when manifold vacuum falls below five

           inches of Mg. for six—cylinder and seven finches of Hg. for

           eight—cylinder engines.

      The staff has previously &                     i    indivi    ly   and has

noted that these design parameters will not have an adverse effect on exhaust

emissions or driveability of automobiles.

      The ARB has exempted a number of individual water injection systems,

fuel heaters, fuel pressure regulators, and an air conditioner compressor

cut—off device.     ARB‘s test data do not show such devices will have any

significant effect on fuel mileage of motor vehicles.     The "Mileage Maker"

device is a combination of these four devices; their combined action still

does not effect any measurable changes in fuel mileage from the test vehicles.
