                             of the Vehicle Code

                        OXFORD AUTOMOTIYE PRODUCTS
                    "MINI—JECTOR FUEL CONTROL" SERIES "M"

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156
of the Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39023 of the
Health and Safety Code;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLYED: That the installation of "Minf—Jector Fuel
Control" Series "M" device manufactured by Oxford Automotive Products, 5165
Sherbrooke Street West, Sufte 419. Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and marketed
by the Duralon Supply of 6150 Mission Gorge Road, Suite 107, San Diego,
California 92120, has been found to not reduce the effectiveness of required
motor vehicle pollution control devices and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1974 and older model—
year vehicles.
The "Mini—Jector Fuel Control" device is a fuel pressure regulator installed
in the fuel line between the fuel pump and the carburetor. The normally open
vaive is biased by a spring force acting on a diaphragm which senses the
engine manifold vacuum. The device has an adjustable knob to control the fuel
pressure by varying the spring pre—load.    The name "Mini—Jector Fuel Control"
Series "M" is embossed on the device.
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 originally
submitted to the Air Resources Board for evaluation that adversely affect the
performance of the vehicle‘s poliution control dev1ces 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 efther expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.



No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by Air Resources Board" may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral
or written communication.

              Evaluation of the Oxford Automotive Products
                 "Mini—Jector Fuel Control" Series "M"
                Fuel Controller for Compliance with the
       Requirements of Section 27156 of the Motor ¥ehicle Code


    Oxford Automotive Products, 5165 Sherbrooke Street West, Suite 419,

    Montreal, Quebec, Canada (formerly G. T. Performance Products —

    Reference Exhibit A) has applied for exemption from the prohibitions

    of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the "Mini—Jector Fuel

    Control" Series "M" device. This section prohibits the installation

    of any device which may reduce the effectiveness of the motor vehicle

    emission control system.   The applicant is requesting the exemption

    be granted for all 1974 and older model—year vehicles.

    The Air Resources Board has adopted criteria for the evaluation of

    "after—market" devices for compliance with Section 27156.    The basis

    for evaluation is defined in the "Air Resources Board Criteria for De—

    termining Compliance with Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle Code",

    dated February 17, 1971.

II. System Description and Function
   The device is a fuel pressure regulator installed in the fuel line between

   the fue! pump and the carburetor (Exhibit B — Installation Instructions).

   Exhibit C contains a description of the device.   A spring suspended ball

   is pressed against a spring loaded diaphgram assembly which senses the

   engine intake manifold vacuum through a rubber hose.

     "MINI—JECTOR FUEL CONTROL " SERIES "M"                                October 3, 1974

        The device has a control knob for adjusting the fuel supply pressure.

        The device has adjustment indications from "A for economy to E for power."

        The applicant calibration flow curve indicating the influence of intake

        manifold vacuum is shown in Figure 1.           The applicant claims that the

        device acts as a "combustion secondary fuel pump, pulsation damper and

        adjustable fuel pressure regulator" to control the flow ‘of fuel from the

        fuel pumé to the carburetor float bow?.          The device is designed to reduce

        fuei flow during engine operating modes when a high intake manifold vacuum

        is experienced.

‘       Based on the variability of the data and anticipating operating

         characteristics of the device, the staff considered the above data

         inconclusive.     Consequently, confirmatory emission tests were per—

         formed by the ARB to investigate the effects of the "Mini—Jéctor Fuel

         Controi"       device on the existing emission control system,.

    ~B. ARB Data

        Back—to—back Hot CVS emission tests were run on the following vehicles:

        1.   1974 Ford Galaxie, Automatic, 2—Bbl Carb., 400 CID (274 KJC),

        Z.   1974 Ford Pinto, Automatic, 2—Bbl Carb., 2.3L (195 LEK).

        The device was maintained at setting A throughout the ARB tests to check

        the case of minimal fuel supply.      The tést data are presented in the

.       following table:

IV.   Staff Eya]fiation

      The staff evaluation is divided into three parts: (A) Evaluation of

      the air leak into the intake system, (B) Failure mode of the diaphragm,

      and (C) Evaluation of the ARB test data.
      A.   Evaluation of Air Leak into the Intake System

           In testing the "Mini—Jector Fuel Control"         Series "M" device,

           the staff discovered the O—ring seals in the control knob housing was

        "MINI—JECTOR FUEL CONTROL® SERIES "M"                                      October 3, 1974

    ’           allowing a small amount of air to enter the engine‘s intake

                system.      The applicant has stated that proper measures had been

                 taken to eliminate the air leak.          The applicant submitted two

                additional devices for evaluation.             The results of the ARB flow

                 tests of the new units and the old units are showed in the table

                below.      The amount of air leakage in the new units was considered

                 negligible and judged to have an insignificant effect on the OEM

                emission control ;ystem.           The new units will be identified by the

                 letter "M" stamped on the side of the device housing.

           B.. Failure Mode of the Diaphragm

               If the diaphragm between the fuel side and vacuum side of the device

               failed, fuel would be drawn into the intake system.              This enrichment

               of the air/fuel ratio would be expected to increase hydrocarbon

"MINI~JECTOR FUEL CONTROL® SERIES "M"                            October 3, 1974

         and carbon monoxide emissions.    The applicant submitted a specifi—

         cation of the diaphragm material which is claimed to be sufficient

         to withstand the stresses encountered with the operation of the

         device (Reference Exhibit D).       The staff concurs with this opinion.

      C. Evaluation of the Test Results

         The emission and the bench flow data were performed with the old

         units.   The device was tested at the setting A which represents the

         minimal rate of fuel flow when com9gred to the baseline flow rates.

         The maximum fuel flow rate with the device is still sufficient to

         supply the power demands of the engine, hence no leaning of the air

         fuef ratio would be expected.    The device does not have the capability

         of increasing the fuel flow rate to the carburetor beyond the normal

         maximum capacity of the fuel pump.    The ARB data shows tfiat the

         "Mini—Jector Fuel Control"       device has no significant effect on
       . exhaust emissions or on fuel consumption.    Therefore, the new units

        would be expected to show similar exhaust emission effects.

¥.   Conclusion and Recommendations

     It is the staff opinion that the "Mini—Jector Fuel Control"        Series "M"

     manufactured by Oxford Automotive Products will not adversely affect motor

     vehicle exhaust emission control systems and hence should be exempt from

     the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Motor Vehicle Code

     for all 1974 and older model—year vehicles.

    Dear   My. Tocawy:

    Confirming our conversation of Tuesday, June 11, you mentioned
    three points of interoest in quolifying the MINLI FUSL JECTOR in

or stop and go driving in slow traffiec.              Vaporwlock can ols
occur as a result of using volatile low grade gosoline or
gosoline designed for winter use and which vaporizes more readily
 in vorm veather.

The Mini Fuel Jector can help correct this "hot"
by holding the fuol in the line under comprossion s
not veporize until after it is delivered to the carb

The Mini Fuel Jector con also reduce vopor lock tendency by
increasing fuel pump output during the non—pumping part of the
pusp stroke.

                                    Exhibtit D (Cont‘d)

Vith the Mini Fusl Jector, there is prectically mo opportunity
for vepor—lock
     2         to occur os a result of reduced p-flflsu-_, because
vepor prosont in the fuel line will be Rrormlessly controlled in
the MEJ‘s fuel chomber where it tends to additionaliy cushion
the flow of gosoline and therefore, do uo harm.

In reference to lecning of the mixture ot lov flow: ‘l“n product
at the "A" setting (low flow} is designéed to feed       imanm
amount of fuel,.   Asyou expleined the oxides of ni
is due to more fuel to\ylr mixture

I am totelly surprised that we lean the mixture           at the low flovw.
I would suspect it on the "E" setting.
