      The applicant states that there is no change in the unit or its application.


I1.   Evaluation
      The 1976 emission control systems are basically the same a             he 1975 systems.
                                                                         c

           Evaluation of the Lift, Inc. "Lift Fuel Efficiency
             System" Vapor Injector for Compliance with the
           _Requirements of Section 27156 of the California
                          Motor Yehicle Code


    Introduction

    Lift, Inc. of 7819 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, Califormia

    90046 has submitted an application requesting an exemption from-Vehic1e.

    Code Section 27156 (Reference — Exhibit A — Applicatiofi) for the "Lift

    Fue! Efficiency System".   This Section of the Vehicle Code prohibits the

    installation of any device or mechanism which would adversely affect the

    performance of the eimission control system.    1   The applicant is requesting

    to extend their exemption to include the 1975 model year vehicles.


    Lfft, Inc, was granted an exemption to Vehicle Code Section 27156

    by Executive Order D—23—2 dated July 12, f974. ©The staff has previously

    evaluated this device and found it to have no adverse effect on 1974 and

    older model—year vehicles (Reference — Exhibitvt and Exhibtt D — January

    22, 1974 and July 3, 1974 Staff Reports).


II. System Description
    The "Lift Fuel Efficiency System" is a vafiér injebtor device where

    the vapor enters the engine through the PCY system {Reference —

    Exhibit B — Instatation Instructibns).      The device consists of a

    plastic tees,plastic‘botfilej rubber hose, mounting bracksts, and

    bottle cap containing an 0.022 inch restriction orifice.        For a


Evaluation of the Lift, Inc. "Lift Fuel Efficiency
System" Yapor Injector for Compliance with the
Requirements of Section 27156 of the California
                     _                               .      December 30, 1974
lotor Vehicle Code



    description concerning the operation of this device, refer to the

     staff report dated January 22, 1974 (Reference — Exhibit C).


    The fluid is a proprietary blend of      alcohol and water solution.

    This fluid is manufactured by Kem Krest Product      Cbmpany, 24684

    Hathaway, Farmington, Michigan 48024.     The composition of this fiuid

   ‘ is identified by Kem Krest Specification Number 1072 and is on file

   .with the Air Resources Board.    The applicant has requested the fiuid

    composition be treated as confidential information.


III. SystemEvaluation

    The staff has determined from previous evaluations of vapor injector

    type devices on pre—1975 model—year vehicles that an increase in ex—

    haust emissions will not cccur if the vapor bleed rate is limited to

    O.]d cubic feet per minute {ofm).     The vapor bleed rate of the "Lift

    Fuel Efficiency System" is lHimited to 0.10 cfm by using a 0.022 inch

    orifice diameter.    The staff believes the 0.10 ofm vapor bleed rate

    would not increase exhaust emissions on the 1975 model—year vehicles.


    However, the catalytic converter system used on some of the 1975 model—

    year vehicles can be déegraded by certain chemica] compounds.     Based on.

    the information submitted by the applicanf concerning the fiuid composition,

    the staff investigated the effects of these chemicals on catalytic con—

    verters.   From.this investigation, the staff ocncludes the Kem EKrest fluid

    does not contain any chemical compounds which will reduce the effectiveness

    of the catalyst.


Evaivation of the Lift, Inc. "Lift Fuel Efficiency
System" Vapor injector for Compliance with the
Requirements of Section 27156 of the California                              .
Motor Vehicle Code                                           December 30, 1974




IV.   Conclusion and Recommendation

      The séaff believes the "Lift Fuel Efficiency Systém" would not have

      an adverse effect on the emission control system provided that the

      flow rate is limited to 0.10 cfm and the fiuid is fdentical to

      those submitted to the staff.   The staff recommends that Lift,"

      Inc. be granted an exemption to Section 27156 for the "Lift Fuel

      Efficiency System" on 1975 and older—model vehicles.

 and oider.

         LIFT,   INC., A California Corporation,               has established its home

 office at 7819 Santa Monica Blvd,             Los Angeles,‘Califorpia $0046.

California in conformity to and subject to all the rules, laws, regula—

 tions of the State of California and suject to direct control of the

pélicies and programs of the Air Resources Board of the State of

California.> There are presently no aétions pending by any govcrnmgntal'

 agency, either federal, state or county against LIFT, INC.,.                   All th

requirements and mandates of the              prior executive orders have been and
                                         &n


                                Exhibit A {cont.)
aré being abided by and conformed to.

     The basic discription of the product still remains the same.            LIFPT

FUEL EFFICENCY SYSTEM 1s a compactunit which can be installed inside

the engine compartment of any car or truck.          The LIFT PUEL EFFICIENCY

SYSTEM is a vopor induction system.     It has a     .022 open/shut valve.

This set orfice controls the turbulation of the LIFT fuel and therefore,

the vapor induged into £he air—gasoline mixture for each combustion.

The LIFT open/shut valve does not require adjusting.

     Basically, LIFT FUEL EFFICIENCY SYSTEM is‘composed of a Plastic

Fuel Reservoir or container;   Control Valve,    Hose and Connecting device,

which(étfaéhes to your carburetor‘s Pollution Control Valve        (PVC).

     Within the reservoir is a firoprietary blend of chemicals that

vaporize from a balanced formula..    This vapor is drawn off the air

space at the top of the reservoir.     It then leads into the carburetor

to blend with the gasoline‘s air mixture before it goes into the

cylinders.   This catalytic action extends the burning time of gasoline,

giving you increased combustion efficiency.

    _This applicatioh, in fact a re—applicafiion, is respectively

submitted for immediate consideration.

 FUZL CONTENT
 inside the plastic bottle is a proprietary fluid, specification No. 1072,
 consisting of water, alcohols, ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons, and other
 organic compounds.
 The control valve which admits vapor to the intake manifold is
 mounted on the cap of the bottle. This valve has only two positfons
 —— fully open or fully closed. it has an orifice diameter of .022 inches.
 The system contains a standpipe which provides venting to the atmos—
 phere. The same model is used for applications to all vehicles.




sSYSTENM FUNCTION

As the engine vacuum increases, bubbles are formed at the end of the
standpipe due to the venting action. The rising vapor bubbles violently
agitate the fluid and tend to increase vaporization. This vaporous—fluid
mixture enters the engine through the PCV system, or any primary
vacuumsource to base of carburetor.

IMPORTANT TIPS

1.        Check all LH—I’ connections to insure against any vacuum leaks.
2.         For best results, have your engine properiy tuned after LIFT
          instalfation, L1F T\vxll not correct pre—existing engine maifunctions.
3.        Be certain to allow time (1,200 to 1,500 miles) for the LIFT
          System to cleanse your engine before achieving its maximum
          efficiency. In most cases you can use a fower octane gasoline with
          a LIFT System!                    .
     ——                  .     .                  &
4.        Compare your mileage improvement by.keeping an accurate record
          on the enclosed warranty card. We would appreciate your
          comments.




When UFT fuel mixture is within 1 or 2 inches from the bottom of the
reservoir, carefully replace oil mixture with fresh L{FT Fuel. Old fuel
mixture should not be mixed with the new fuel.
You should get approximately 2,500 to 4,000 miles per 60—o0zs, of
LIFT Fuel, depending on engine cubic—inch displacement.

 Introduction

 Tha Air Resources Board Laboratory has conducted further emission

 testing with the "Lift Fuel Efficiency System" to confirm previous

 test results.    This vapor injector is manufactured by St. Clair

— Sales & Distribution and utilizes a proprietary fiuid manufactured

 by Kem Crest Products Company of Farmington, Michigan.     The additional

 tests were performed at the requests of the Sacramento District

 Attorney and Staff Counsel to investigate the effectiveness of the

 "Lift" device.


 St. Clair Sales & Distribution original application to the Air

 Resources Board for an éxémmtion to Vehicle Code Section 27156 was

 dated Hovember 28, 1973.    An evaluation of the device showed that

 it would not have any adverse effect on émissiohs* and‘consequentTy,

 the Staff recommended in a staff report dated January 22, 1974, that

 an exemption be granted.    Executive Order D—24 was issued on January 24,

 1974 granting the exemption to Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code.

        On May 17, 7974{ Executive Order D—24—1 was issued revoking Executive

        Order D—24.    The viclation of the conditions of the Executive Order
       led to the revocation.


11.     System Description

       The "Lift Fuel Efficiency System" procurred commercially was found

      . _to be basically the same device evaluated by the ARB staff previously.

      ‘ The orifice diamater of the control valve is 0822 inches which is

      . identical to the device previously evaluated.    The device was re—

       ceived with the proprietory fluid.


       Maximum air flow capacities of the present and original tested

       device are 0.050CFM and 0.080 CFM respectively.     (See Figure 1 and

        Figure ?2).   The difference is within manufacturing tolerances.


II1. Emission Test Program
       The test program consisted af three pairs of back to back hot CVS—1

       tests comparing the emissfons with and without the device.     The

       three pair tests have been determined by the staff as being sufficient

       to determine whether the device would have a significant effect on

       the emission caontrol system.


       The vehicle selected had the following specifications:

          .                                      ~l~                               (Con‘t)


This set orifice controls the    turbulation of   the LIFT   fuel   and

therefore,    the vapor induced into the air—gasoline mixture for
each combustion.    The LIFT open/shut valve does not require adjusting.

      Basically, LIFT FUE    EFFICIEN@Y SYSTEM is composed of a Plastic
Fuel Reservoir—or container;    Control Valve, Hose and Connecting device,
which attaches to your carburetor‘s Pollution Control Valve          {PVC).

      Within the reservoir is a proprietary blefld of chemicals that
vaporize from a balanced formula,     This vapor is drawn off the air
space at the top of the reservoir.     It then leads into the carburetor
to blend with the gasoline‘s air mixture before it goes into the
cylinders.    This catalytic action extends the burning time of gasoline,
giving you increased combustion efficiency.

      This application,   in fact a re—application,   is respectfully
submitted for inmediate consideration.
