Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39023 of
the Health and Safety Code;
IT IS ORDERED AND RESQOLYED:   That the installation of "Gas Energizer EI—100"
device manufactured by Energy Innovations of 32136 Beach Lake Lane, Westlake
Village, California has been found to not reduce the effectiveness of

older model—year vehicles except the following:

     1.   All vehicles equipped with an electronic ignition system.

     2.   All 1966—70 model—year vehicles equipped with a Dana or Carter
          NOx retrofit device using an electronic speed sensor.

The "Gas Energizer EI—100" is a single wire cofl wound in alternating
directions with a non—magnetic core. The coil is encapsulated in a
plastic mold and is stationary mounted by plastic tie down fasteners.
The device also includes two snap—fit electronic suppression cables.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions
for this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different than those listed by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device as
criginally submitted to the Air Resources Board for evaluation that
adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control
devices shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application
other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless
prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect
that the use of this device may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

                               Staff Report

                   Evaluation of the Energy Innovations
                        "Gas Energizer EI—100"
                 Non—Magnetic Coil for Exemption from
         the Prohibition of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code


 1. Introduction

    Energy Innovations, 32136 Beach Lake Lane, Westlake Village, California

    91361 has applied for exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156

   of the Vehicle Code for its "Gas Energizer EI—100" device.     This section

    prohibits the installation of any device which may reduce the effective—

   ness of the motor vehicle emission control system.     The applicant is

   requesting the exemption be granted for all 1974 and older model—year

   vehicles except the following:

       1 — All vehicles equipped with an electronic ignition system.

        2 — All 1966—70 model—year vehicles equipped with a Dana or Carter

            NOx retrofit device using an electronic speed sensor.


II. System Description and Function

   The device is a non—magnetic coil consisting of a single insulated copper

   wire wound in alternating directions around a Cycolac (pTasfic) core.
   The device shown in Figure 1 is 2 in. x 2 in. square,9 in. long, and

   weighs approximately 1—1/4 lbs.    The coil shown in Finge 2 Has 200 to

   214 turns and is encapsulated in Cycolac.      It has an electrical resistance

   of 1.2 to 1.4 ohms and uses No. 22 SPN insulated copper wire.     TVRS (TV

   and radio suppression) cables with snap—fit connection are inserted

   into the terminals at each end of the coil.     The TVRS cables are

   connected to the OEM coil and to the distributor.


Evaluation of the Energy Innovations "Gas
Energizer EI—100" Non—Magnetic Coil for
Exemption from the Prohibitions of Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code                                 August 22, 1974




     The applicant claims that the'“Gas Energizer E1I—100" will reduce the

     output voltage of the OEM coil if high and will increase the output

     voltage of the OEM coil if low.      The ARB staff is of the opinion that

     this device would have an insignificant effect on the output voltage

     in efther direction since the device has no magnetic core and has a

     relatively small electrical resistance.


III. System Evaluation

     A.   Applicant‘s Data

          The applicant submitted superimposed spark curve pictures taken

          from a 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III, see Figure 3.     These

          pictures show a decrease in the output voltage.     The applicant also

          submitted Olson Laboratories, Inc. report # 8855—5101 dated July 2,

          1974.     This report contains data from Federal hot CVS tests performed

          on the following vehicles:

              1974 Ford Pinto, 2.3L, 4—cylinders, auto. trans. (915 KHN),

              1967 Lincoln Continental, 462 CID, V—8, auto. trans. (TRA 886).
          The obtained data are as follows:

                                            Grams/Mile
          Ford Pinto             _HC_           CcB          _NOx_

Exemption from the Prohibitions of Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code                                     August 22, 1974




                                                   Grams/Mile

          An evaluation of the above data indicates that the increase in HC

          from the Ford Pinto may have been due to a possible misfire or a

          restart during the test.      Consequently, the ARB staff performed a

          confirmatory test series on an identical Ford Pinto to investigate

          this increase in HC.      In additioh, a 1974 Dodge 360 CID was used

          to investigate detailed electrical system characteristics.


     B.   ARB Testing
          The ARB performed calibration tests to investigate the effect of the

          "Gas Energizer EI—100" on the engine electrical system.            A 1974

          Dodge Monaco, 360 CID, V—8, auto. trans. (DH 430—41657587) vehicle
          was used.      The following results were obtained with the engine in

          the unloaded condition.

        The above data indicate that no significant effects occur beyond

        what is considered normal test variability.

         Confirmatory emission tests were performed by the Hot CVS—1 test

         method on a 1974 Ford Pinto, 2.3L, 4—cylinders, auto. trans.

         (195 LEK)}.   This vehicle is simtlar to the vehicle tested by Olson

         Laboratories Inc. and submitted by the applicant.     Three back—to—

         back Hot CVS exhaust emission tests were performed with and without

         the device.     The following data were obtained:

                                 HC.        co          NOx         ues

         Avg. % Change          4.1       _ 2.0        2.5          ~0.6
         The above data indicate that the device did not produce any significant

         effects on exhaust emissions or fuel economy.


 IV. Conclusion and Recommendation

     Based on the staff‘s evaluation and the available test data, the use of

     the "Gas Energizer EI—100" would not result in any significant effect

     on exhaust emissions or fuel economy of a motor vehicle.     It is the

     staff‘s opinion that "Gas Energizer EI~100" manufactured by Energy

     Innovations of Westlake Village, California should be granted an exemp—

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

     1974 and older model year vehicles except for the following:

         1 — All vehicles equipped with electronic ignition systems.

         2 — AMl 1966—70 model—year vehicles equipped with an NOx retrofit

             device using an electronic speed sensor such as the Dana or

             Carter device.
