                                 SUMMARY



      D & S Enterprises of Jacksonville, Florida, has requested an

exemption from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section for

their combined fuel heater and fuel pressure regulator device, a

simplified version of the "Mileage Maker" manufactured by the Olde

Worlde, Inc., in Greenboro, North Carolina.    D & S Enterprises has

requested that the device be exempted for 1983 and older model—year motor
vehicles equipped with a six— or eight—cylinder carbureted engine,

excluding those equipped with a fuel injected or a turbocharged engine.

      Based on an engineering evaluation of each component (fuel heater

and fuel pressure regulator) of thigdevice, the staff concludes that the
device will not have an adverse/f?fect on exhaust emissions from the

vehicles for which exemption is requested.    The staff, therefore,
recommends that D & S Enterprises be granted an exemption for their

device for the vehicles requested and that Executive Order D—139 be

issued.

      EVALUATION OF D & S ENTERPRISES‘ SIMPLIFIED "MILEAGE MAKER" DEVICE
       FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156
                   IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13,
                     OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE.



I.      INTRODUCTION

        D & S Enterprises, of 5425 Waterside Drive, Jacksonville, Florida

32210, has requested an exemption of an add—on device from the

prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section 27156.    They have

requested that their combined fuel heater and fuel pressure regulator
device, which is a simplified version of the "Mileage Maker", be exempted

for 1983 and older model—year motor vehicles equipped with a six— or

eight—cylinder carbureted engine, excluding those equipped with a fuel

injected or a turbocharged engine.

II.     CONCLUSION

        Based on an engineering evaluation of each component (fuel heater

and fuel pressure regulator) of the device, the staff concludes that the

device will not have an adverse effect on exhaust emissions from the

vehicles for which exemption is requested.

III.    RECOMMENDATIONS

        The staff recommends that D & S Enterprises be granted an exemption
for their simplified "Mileage Maker" device for 1983 and older modeT—year

motor vehicles equipped with a six— or eight—cylinder carbureted engine,

excluding those equipped with a fuel injected or a turbocharged engine.

The staff also recommends issuance of Executive Order D—139.


IV.   DEVICE DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
      The complete "Mileage Maker" device is a combination of a fuel

heater, a fuel pressure regulator, an air conditioner compressor cut—off

switch, and a water/vapor injector.     It is manufactured by Olde Worlde,

Inc. and is exempted for California sale under Air Resources Board

Executive Order D—130.    The simplified device is a combination of a fuel
heater and a fuel pressure regulator only.     It is packaged with

installation hardware and instructions and sold as a kit.

      The fuel heater and fuel pressure regulator are positioned in

series between the fuel 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 temperature

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 the heater
exchanger, at a maximum temperature of 120°F, the fuel passes through the

fuel pressure regulator and into the carburetor inlet.     Carburetor inlet

fuel pressure is Timited to 3.5 psi by the design of the fuel pressure

regulator.

      No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required,

nor permitted, when the “MiTege Maker" is installed.


V.    DLSCUSSION

      The complete "Mileage Maker" consisting of a fuel heater, a fue!l

pressure regulator, an air conditioner compressor cut—off switch and a

water/vapor injector has been previously evaluated and exempted by the
Air Resources Board under Executive Order D—130.     The device

manufacturer, by Olde Worlde, Inc., has permitted D & S Enterprises to

distribute and sell the device, and has transferred to them their ARB

files and contents therein.

      D & S Enterprises has decided to modify the device by deleting the

water/vapor injector and air conditioner compressor cut—off switch

components.

      The staff has evaluated the design parameters of each component of

the simpTified "Mileage Maker" device.     The design parameters are as
follows.

      &       fuel heater — maximum fuel temperature of 120°F into

              carburetor inlet.
      &       fuel pressure regulator — maximum fuel pressure of 3.5 psi

              into carburetor inlet.

      The staff has previously evaluated these components individually

and has noted that these design parameters will not have an adverse

effect on exhaust emissions or driveabiTity of motor vehicles for which

exemption is requested.
