                 3.   The Platinum Gasaver by being installed in the engine alters the
                      original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

                —6.   The Air Resources Board, in the exercise of technical judgement,
                      is aware of no basis on which the Platinum Gasaver will provide an
                      increase in fuel economy.

      engine‘s intake manifold, and a prop

                The reservoir is made of molded plas

      reservoir, an outlet nipple with

      reservoir and an inlet opening clos

                                                                              A 5/8
      inch fill pipe is open at the top
                                         to the atmosphere; its bottom is
                                                                          connected to
      the reservoir‘s inlet opening. A
                                         fill line is marked on the side of
                                                                             the

      half of its volume (nominal fill
                                        is approximately one pint).
             A "T" connector is used to link
                                              the connecting tubing through exis

                                        ke manifold.  The tubing ends are simply
     slipped over the "T" connector and
                                        the outlet nipple on the reservoir
                                                                           without

            In operation, negative pressure
                                            from the engine intake manifold
                                                                            is

     bottom portion of the reservoir.     The air then bubbles through the flui
                                                                                d and
     rises to the upper portion of the
                                        reservoir to be mixed there with

      V.     DISCUSSION

             National Gasaver Corporation previous
Li




                                                  ly received a VC 27156 exemption
      for the Platinum Gasaver for 1983
                                        and older model—years.  The device has not
      changed and this same technology can
                                           be used on the 1990 model—year vehi
                                                                               cles.
      Therefore, staff determined the Platinum
                                               Gasaver will not have an adverse
      impact on 1990 and older model—year
                                          vehicles.
