                                     summary

      Staglo Efficiency Systems, Inc. of 411 S. Main Street, Osceola, Ilowa

50213, submitted an application for exemption from the prohibitions in Section

27156 of the California Yehicle Code for the corporate‘s "Staglo GZe Unit"
device.   The app]icant has requested that exemption be granted for

installation of this device on all 1984 and older model—year water—cooled

diesel—powered motor vehicles.

      The device is a simple heat exchanger utilizing engine coolant and an

electrical heater to heat up the fuel supply to the engine for easy start up

in cold weather.

      The staff, based on engineering principle, evaluated the device and
determined that the installation of a fuel heater in series with the diesel
engine fuel system will not adversely affect the performance of factory

equipped emission control systems.   The staff recommends that the Air

Resources Board {ARB) exempt the "Staglo GZe Unit" device from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 and that Executive Order D—147 be
issued, allowing the installation of the "Staglo GZ2e Unit" device on all 1984
and older model—year water—cooled diesel—powered vehicles.

EVALUATION OF THE STAGLO EFFICIENCY SYSTEMS, INC.‘S STAGLO GZe UNIT FOR
EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN VEKICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE
WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE.

1.    INTRODUCTION
      Staglo Efficiency Systems, Inc. of 411 S. Main Street, Osceola, Ilowa

50213, submitted an appliéation for exemption from the prohibitions in Section

27156 of the California Vehicle Code for the corporate‘s "Staglo GZe Unit"
device.     Vehicle Code Section 27156 prohibits the installation of any device

or mechanitsm which reduces the effectiveness of required emission control

systems on any California certified vehicles.     This code also authorizes the

Air Resources Board (ARB) to exempt a device from the prohibitions if it can

be demonstrated that the device, upon installation on the engine, will not

adversely affect the performance of existing emission control systems.       The

applicant has requested that the exemption be granted for the installation of

this device on all 1984 and older model—year water—cooled diesel—powered

vehicles.

II.   CONCLUSION

      The staff evaluated the device and found that the "Staglo 62e Unit"

device will not have a significant adverse effect on emissions from 1984 and

older model—year    water—cooled diesel—powered motor vehicles.     The applicant

has agreed to the request of the ARB to remove the claims of "Cuts Emissions

By Up To 78%" in the company‘s sales brochures.       The ARB also advised the

applicant that the company should be prepared to substantiate the increased

fuel economy claims by valid Taboratory tests.


III.    RECOMMENDATION

       Based upon engingering evaluation made on a sample device, production

blue—prints, and technical data submitted by the applicant, the staff

recommends that the ARB exempt the "Staglo G2e Unit" device from the

prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and that Executive Order D—147 be

issued, allowing the installation of the "Staglo GZ2e Unit" device on all 1984

and older model—year water—cooled diesel—powered motor vehicles in California.

IV.    SYSTEM DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

       The "Staglo GZe Unit" device is a heat exchanger manufactured from a

5/8" diameter x 15‘—0" long copper tubing helically coiled in a 4" x 4" x 16"

case made of mild steel.     Attached to each end of the case, is a 5/8" hose

fitting to accommodate the circulation of engine coolant through the case,.

Also, two 5/8" compression fittings are mounted on one of the end plates to

hold the coiled copper tubing in place and at the same time work as fuel inlet

and outlet connectors.     On the other end plate, a single phase electrical

heater rated at 300—Watts, 110—¥Volts and 60—hertz is installed for overnight

fue! heating as a quick—starting aid.     Two pairs of half—brackets with rubber

pads are use to secure the device in the engine compartment.

       Figure 1 ({Appendix A) shows a typical flow diagram.   The device is

mounted between the fuel tank and the fuel filter.     Installation of this

device in a fuel system of a diesel—engine equipped vehicle is done by

connecting the inlet and outlet fittings to the hot engine coolant supply line

and back to the engine line.    Temperature of the incoming engine coolant is

determined by the engine thermostat rating (about 180°F).     The two ends of the

copper coil of the device are connected, such that one to the fuel supply

coming from the storage tank and the other to the fuel filter lines,.


      Without the "Staglo GZ2e Unit" device the temperature of the fuel
supplied to the engine is dependent upon the ambijent temperature.     If the

vehicle is exposed to sub—zero weather temperature, then the fuel stored in

the fuel storage tank will be at the same sub—zero temperature.      Diesel—fuel

at this temperature tends to congeal.   Very poor engine starting will result

causing more unburned fuel to be blown out of the exhaust pipe.      For cold

starts with the "Staglo G2e Unit" device, the   diesel—fuel from the fuel tank
is routed into the heat exchanger where it absorbs heat energy from an

electrical heater rated at 300—Watts, 110—¥olts and 60—Hertz which is inserted

in the device for overnight fuel heating.

V.    D1SCUSSION

      The applicant submitted several customer testimonials including a copy

of laboratory particulate test results on their "Staglo G2e Unit" conducted by

Corning.Laboratories, Inc. of Cedar Falls, Ilowa 50613.   The testimonials are

very subjective; they were not used in the ARB‘s evaluation of the device.

      The Staff, based on engineering principles, evaluated the device and

determined that the installation of a fuel heater, such as the "Staglo GZe

Unit" device in series witfi the diesel engine fuel system will not adversely

affect the performance of factory equipped emission control systems.
