                                    SUMMARY


         United Auto Dismantling, Inc., of 2115 South Union Drive, Bakersfield,

CA   93307, has requested an update to Executive Order D—160—2 from the

prokibitions of Vehicle—Code Section (VC) 27156 for their Gas Tank Restrictor,

Models 201, 202 and 203.    The exemption update will reflect a change in

ownership; these devices were previously owned by Advanced Emission Technology

{AET).    AET has submitted a letter informing the Air Resources Board (ARB) of

the transfer of ownership to United Auto Dismantling, Inc.

         These devices are designed to repliace damaged or tampered original

equipment manufacturer (OEM) unleaded fuel fill pipe restrictors on the

following catalyst equipped vehicles:



         Model 201 — GM, Ford, AMC, Chrysler vehicles with "screw in" type fuel

                     filler caps, and Chrysler vehicles with "twist on" type fuel

                     filler caps.   All other foreign and domestic vehicles with

                     pipe diameter of 1.80 to 1.95 inches.



         Model 202 — Ford vehicles with stepped double flange on inside tube.

                    All other foreign and domestic vehicles with pipe diaméter

                    of 2.00 to 2.09 inches.


       Model 203 — Chrysler vehicle with "funnel" shaped gas filler neck which

                   have an inside diameter exceeding 2.095 inches and Ford

                   vehicle with gas filler necks without stepped diameter of

                   double flange.   ATl other foreign and domestic vehicles with

                   pipe diameter of 2.10 and 2.25 inches.



This device is only applicable for replacing OEM restrictors where remains of

the OEM restrictor exists.

       The staff recommends adoption of Executive Order D—223 granting United

Auto Dismantling, Inc. exemption for the Gas Tank Restrictor, Models 201, 202

and 203 from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section (VC) 27156.

I.    INTRODUCTION
      Advanced Emission Technology (AET) of Vancouver, Washington has received

an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code under

Executive Order D-160;2 for its Gas Tank Restrictor, Models 201, 202 and 203.

This device is designed to replace damaged or tampered original equipment

manufacturer (OEM) unleaded fuel fill pipe restrictors on the following

catalyst equipped vehicles:



       Mode} 201 — GM, Ford, AMC, Chrysler vehicles with "screw in" type fuel

                     filter caps, and Chrysler vehicles with "twist on" type fuel

                     filler caps.     All other foreign and domestic vehicles with

                     pipe diameter of 1.80 to 1.95 inches.



       Model 202 — Ford vehicles with stepped double flange on inside tube.

                     All other foreign and domestic vehicles with pipe diameter

                     of 2.00 to 2.09 inches.



       Mode] 203 — Chrysler vehicles with "funnel" shaped gas filler neck which

                     have an inside diameter exceeding 2.095 inches and Ford

                     vehicles with gas filler necks without stepped diameter or

                     double flange.    ‘All other foreign and domestic vehicles with

                     pipe diameter of 2.10 and 2.25 inches.



                                          —1—


This device is only applicable for replacing OEM restrictors where remains of

the OEM restrictor exists.

       United Auto Dismantling, Inc. (United), of 2116 South Union Drive,

Bakersfield, California 93307, has requested an update to Executive Order D—

160—2 to reflect a change in ownership of the Gas Tank Restrictor, Models 201,

202 and 203.   AET submitted a statement to the ARB stating that United has

acquired all rights to the gas tank restrictors.   United claims that there is

no change in the design of the original units or their application.



II.    CONCLUSTONS
       Based on the previous evaluation of the gas tank restrictors, the staff

concludes that the United Gas Tank Restrictor, Mogels 201, 202 and 203 meets

the requirements for a Y¥C 27156 exemption and will not have any adverse effects

on the exhaust emissions from gasoline powered vehicles.



III.   RECOMMENDATION
       The staff recommends United Auto Dismantling, Inc. be granted an

exemption from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section 27156 for

their Gas Tank Restrictor, Models 201, 202 and 203 and that Executive Order

D—223 be issued.


IV.    DEVICEDESCRIPTIGN
       The Gas Tank Restrictor device is an unleaded fuel fill pipe testrictor

to replace damaged or tampered OEM restrictors.    It is not intended to

replace OEM restrictors which have been completely removed; without any support

(remnant from the damaged or tampered OEM restrictor) it would fall through the

fill pipe into the fuel. tank.

       The device (all three models) is made of 0.028 inch sheet metal (see

Appendices A, B and C for drawings).    The device has a 0.915 inch diameter

filling hole for passing the nozzle to the required depth in the fill pipe.

The filling hole has an eccentricity of 0.230 inch with respect to the

centerline of the fill pipe neck.   The overall diameter of the device is 1.95

inches (model 201), 2.072 inches (model 202), or 2.210 inches (model 203).

       The diameter of the device where the teeth have been removed is 1.56

inches (only models 201 and 203).   Attached to the hind side of the device is a

spring loaded 0.029 inch thick flapper door which covers the filling hole and

is maintained in the closed position.

       The device has 16 ({model 202) or 12 (models 201 and 203) sharp teeth

which are unequally spaced around the device allowing the device to be pushed

into the fill pipe and to fit on top of the remains of the OEM restrictor.

According to the installation instructions (see Appendix D), the device can be

installed without removing the gas tank or gas filler tube from the vehicle.

Once installed, it cannot be removed since the teeth are all bent upward, and

the device is squeezed tightly against the fill pipe wall.


V.     DISCUSSTON
       United has purchased AET and the rights to their products which are

exempted from VC 27156 under Executive Order D—160—2.   All the necessary

equipment used by AET to manufacture Gas Tank Restrictor, Models 201, 202 and

203 will be acquired by United.   The manufacturing process and materials used

will remain the same and some personnel from AET will be retained by United as

consultants.

       The staff is of the opinion that the United Gas Tank Restrictor, Models

201, 202 and 203, meets the requirements for exemption from the prohibitions of

Vehicle Code Section 27156.

 INSTALLATION
 INSTRUCTIONS




When resizer is being installed, use a 1" wooden dowel to make
sure worn or tampered hole is large enough to accept unit. The
Restrictor with flapper assembly will require a much larger opening.
Insert the Ford type 202 or the 302 vertically (on edge} through the
two notches in the fip. Unit will then drop into pipe. After
positioning, drive into place using a suitable sized wooden dowel or
installation tool part no. 304. See fig. 1.
Then insert the device at a 45 degree angle with the top 7 teeth still
outside the lip and the bottom 5 teeth inside the pipe touching the
old restrictor cross section. After proper pasitioning, drive into
place with a wooden dowel against the top 7 teeth but below the
bend fine. If the 203 is used on a Chrysler neck with a wide lip, snap
off the Sth tooth for easier insertion. See fig. 2.
When using the 203 on Ford vehicles, refer to installation in—
structions above for the 202.
If the original hole does not exist or is greatly enlarged,
Restrictor with flapper should always be installed so that the offSet
filler hole is positioned toward the bottom of the filler pipe.
                             LIMITATIONS
All makes and models where tampering is so exiensive that original
equipment metal has been completely removed, in this case use
Universal Part No. D—160.
