                       EXECUTIVE ORDER D—52
             Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                         of the Yehicle Code

                       THE FUELIZER CORPORATIQN
                     "ELECTRONIC ENGINE FUELIZER" —

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 urdersigned by Section 39023 of
the Health and Safety Code;

If IS QRDERED AND RESOLYED: That the installation of the "Electrontc
Engine Fuelizer" manufactured by the Fuelizer Corporation has been
found to not reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollu—
tion control devices and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions
of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1975 model—year vehicles and
dlder except vehicles equipped with oversize ignition wires, such as,
Delco Remy HEI systems used with General Motors Corporation vehicles.
This device consists of a set of plastic ignition wire adapters
connected by an insulated wire.

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. No claim shal}
be made for requiring special ignition wires with this device.

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 pollution control
devices shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an fdentification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an applteatton
other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be profibfted 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.

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

On the basis of its evaluation of the Fuelizer device, the Air Resourc
Board has determined that the Fuelizer does not have a significant ef
on engine ignition performance.

Section 17500 of the Business and Professions Code makes unlawful, untrus
or misleading advertising, and Section 17534 makes violation punishabi
a misdemeanor.

Sections 39130 and 39184 of the Health and Safety Code provide as follca:>

     "39130.   No person shall install, sell, offer for sale, or advertiss,
     or, except in an application to the board for certification of a
     device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle poliution control
     device unless that device has been certified by the board. No
     person shall sell, offer for sale, advertise, or represent any moto:
     vehicle pollution control device as a certified device which, in
     fact, is not a certified device. Any violation of this section is
     a misdemeanor."
     "39184.   (a)   No person shall install, sell, offer for sale, or advectice
     or, except in an application &0 the board for accreditation of a
     device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle pollution control
     device for use on any used motor vehicle unless that device has bean
     accredited by the beard.    No person shall sell, offer for sale, a
     tise, or represent any motor vehicle pollution control device as
     accredited device. Any violation of this section is a misdemeanor."

Any apparent violation of the conditions of this Executive Order will be
submitted to the Attornsy General of California for such action as he
desms advisable.
Executed at Sacramento, California, this 26 day ;;,May, 1975.

                      UOfstrtbutor Terminal Adapter
               Systent for Exemption to the Prohibitions .
              of Sectfon 27156 of the Motor Yehicle Code


 The Fuelizer Corporetfon has applied for exemption to the prohibitions

‘of Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle Code for the "Electronic Engine

 Fuelizer".     Sectfom Z/15¢ prohibits the installation of any device

\which reduces the effectiveness of motor vehicle emission control

 systems unless foumt by the Air Resources Board to not adversely affect

 emissions.      The apprifcant: intends to sell the product as an aftermarket

 part for 4975 made]T—yerr~ vehifles and older except vehicles equipped with

 oversize fgnitfan w.'fi?es_,. such as, De1c6 Remy HEI systems used with

 General Motors Corporetion vehicles.

 The Air Resources Board hadpreviously evaluated similar devices when

 marketed under the nes of "Paser Magnum" and "Paser 500".        After

 performing anm engimeerming evaluation, the Board found these devices to

 not have an adverse effect on the ‘existing: polliution control system

 and Section 27156 exemptio_ns were granted to the manufacturers of

 these devices.

"Electronic Engine Fueltfzer"                           v March 10, 1975

1.   System Descriptfon

     This device is a set of mine metallic clips molded in plastic adapters

     which are *;nstact'lect over the ignition wires near the distributor

     terminals.   The metaTTic clips are connected in series by an insulated

     wire.   No direct electrical continuity exists between the clips and

     the ignition wires.    The installed device is shown in Figure 1.

111. System Evaluattan

     Thé only possfhle adverse: effect arising from finstallation of this

     device is cross firing that:may occur between the clips and ignition

     wire. Although there ts nu electrical continuity between the insulated

     wire and the adaepter clipm,. ve;‘y high voltages have a tendency to bridge

     insulated termfinets whicir may lead to premature firing of the air/fuel


     Tests to Ustermfne whether this effect existed were performed on a

     simtlar device.     T’he tests: consisted of using the vehicle‘s ignit .

     system to generate the Wigh voltage required to bridge thé gap between

     the wire and the adapter.     One test was performed with the ignition on

     and the engine nok aperating.and a second test was performed with the

     engine runnitng at féle..

     For both tests, the adapter insulated wire was cut and each end connected

     to the leads of & voltmeter to determine if any electrical potential



“E'l‘ectronic Engine FueTfzer"                              March 10, 1975

     No deflection on the voltmeter was noticed in both tests indicating

     that the ignition wire has enough resistance to prevent electrical

     continuity from extsting between the ignition wire and terminal.

     Conclusion and Recommendation
     The test performed on similar devices indicate that they do not have

     any adverse affect on the existing emission control system.    It is the

     staff‘s opinton that the "Hlectronic Engine Fuelizer" will have the

     same effect.   Therefore,. the:staff recommends that the "Electronic

     Engine Fueltzer" ts granted an exenption from the prohibitions of

     Section 27156 for THk ant older model year vehicles except vehicles

     equipped with averstzm ignition wires, such as, Delco Remy HEI systems

     used with GenereT Metors: Corporation Vehicles.
