                         Staff Report

               Evaluation of Energy Products, Inc.

Introduction

Energy Products, Inc. of 434b Redwood Highway, San Rafael, California

94903 has requested permission to market a device called "V. C. Meter".

This device is manufactured by Albano Enterprises, Inc. of Santa Ana,

California 94903 and is identical in construction and performance to

the "Air Jet" device also manufactured by Albano Enterprises;     The "Air

Jet" device as submitted by Albano Enterprises was evaluated by the Air

Resourceé Board Staff and found to not adversely affect the emission

control system.   Executive Order D—14—3 was issued to Albano Enterprises

granting the exemption for the "Air Jet" device for 1972—1974 model—year

vehicles with engines greater than 140 cubic inch displacement.     Executive

Order D—14—4 was issued to Energy Products for the "V. C. Meter" device

for 1972—1974 model—year vehicles with engines greater than 140 cubic

inch displacement.   Energy Products Inc. now requests extension of the

exémption to include 1975 vehicles.


O "VY. C. Meter" Air Bleed Vaive                             March 4, 1975




 41.   Device Description

       For a description of the construction and operation of the "V. C. Meter",

       see the report on the Staff‘s evaluation of the "Air Jet" device dated

       March 27, 1974.


       The "V. C. Meter" trade name is permanently stamped on the device at

       the bottom of the housing.


  111. Conclusions and Recommendation

       The Staff has evaluated the "Air Jet" device and found that it has no

       significant effects on exhaust emissions.   It is the opinion of the

       Staff that the "V. C. Meter" device being identical in construction and

       performance would also produce the same effect.   'It is also concluded

       that it would not have significant effects on 1975 vehicle emissions.


       The Staff recommends that Energy Products, Inc. be granted an exemption

       from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for its

       "V. C. Meters" for 1972 to   1975 model—year vehicles with engines

       greater than 140 cubic inch displacement.

  Dear Mr.       Drachand:

  This is acknowledging your letter of the 24th of Febuary regarding
  the (EXTENTION) of the V.C. METER to include the year of 1975.

  Re:    Sub    title    one,    our new instruction sheets will plainly            state
  the following.          (The V.C.    METER)   is not authorized for FOREIGN
  AUTOMOBLES .


1/2.)    We will deléte the followng on the TWO Y.C.               Meter installation
  on    any    such automoble       applicable.
                                                                               :

& 3.} We will also state the following:               To be    1nstalled only on

 Since we have spent a goodly amount on the printing we have in
 stock, and only have in the amounts that would supply HOLLYWOOD
 ACCESSORIES we have gone to the task of having a stamp made to
 satisfy tha above revisions.

 As mentioned in           our conversation with Mr.         George Lew this       morning
  we hope this will fill             the void until such time Hollywood Access—
  ories       takes   complete     controll   and distribution    of our product.

 We will be solely responsible for all the Exemption Orders regard—
 less of who distibutes the V.C. METER.

  Thanking you          for your time and interest,      I remain
