                                  Staff Report

                      Evaluation of Palmco Engineering Co.
                                "Monitor Gasaver"
                  for Exemption from the Prohibitions of
                  Section 27156 of the Motor Yehicle Code


       Introduction
r—i




       Palmce Engineering Co., has submitted an application requesting en

       exemption from Section 27156 of the California Motor Vehicle Code

       for the "Monitor Gasaver" (Reference — Exhibit A)}.    Vehicle Code

       Section 27156 prohibits the installation of any device or mechanism

       which reduces the effectiveness of the required emission control

       systems.   This vehicle code section also authorizes the Air Resources

       Board to exempt devices from this prohibition if a finding shows the

       device will not adversely affect the performance of the emission

       control system.     The applicant is requesting the exemption be granted

       for all 1975 and older model—year vehicles.


 11.   System Description
       This device consists of a plastic unit installed in the fuel Hine

       between the—carburetor and the fuel pump.     The unit contains two dia—

       phragms and calibrated back up springs to absorb the pulsattons

       created in the fuel by the fuel pump.


III. System Function

       According to the applicant, the device improves the life of the

       carburetor valve'seat and float and maintains an even float level

       at all times.   In addition the unit will indicate fuel pump pressure.

      \ (See Exhibit B).


IV.    System Evaluation

       The staff is of the opinion that since there is no restriction to the

       flow of fuel, there is no affect on emissions.      The pressure in this

       section of the lTine is approximately 8 1bs./in2;     The diaphragm burst
       pressure specification is 3000 Tbs/inz.     {Exhibit C).   There appears

       to be no safety hazard from the bursting of the diaphragm.      The unjt °

       appears leak proof and 5 nuts and bolits are used to clamp the unit

       and diaphragms together.


       Conclusion and Recommendatio

       Based on an engineering evaluation, the device does not appear to have

       any effect on emissions and there is no basis upon which to deny

       exemption.   The staff, therefore, reconmends that Palmco Engineering

       Co. be granted an exemption from the prohibitions of Yehicle Code

       Section 27156 for the "Monitor Gasaver" for all 1975 and older model

       year vehicles using gasoline carburetors.


                                                                              Exhibit A
