Nr. K. D. Drachand, Chief          — 2 —            March 23, 1977


Because of the varied effects involved,       it would be impossible
for us to claim an exact percentage of economy improvement for
the Mark—II.  Many of the automotive experts from national auto—
motive publications have written articles reporting mileage in—
creases provided by the Mark—II as high as 20%.           The EPA has re—
ported a statistically significant 2% mileage increase for our
product.

Additionally, the EPA test showed small reductions of all three
emissions.  Therefore, I would like to point out that the APO
Mark—II GT Vapor Injector does not adversely effect existing em—
ission control devices and should be granted an exemption to ve—
hicle code 27156 as requested.

                                 Sincerely'yours,
