EVALUATION OF "CAGLE CORPORATION MARK II AUTOMATIC
   FUEL CONTROL® DEVICE FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE
  PROHIBITIONS IN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN
   ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13 OF THE
           CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE




                NOVEMBER 1, 1982


                                    SUMMARY



      Cagle Corporation requested an update of their existing exemption,

Executive Order No. D—75—4, from the prohibition in Vehicle Code Section 27156

for their "Cagle Mark II Automatic Fuel Control" fuel pressure regulator for

automobiles.   In particular, Cagle requested that the exemption be updated to

include all 1982 model—year gasoline—powered vehicles with conventional

carburetors.

      Based on previous emissions tests performed on 1979 model—year vehicles,

and an engineering evaluation of 1979 through 1982 model—year vehicle‘s fuel

systems, the staff has concluded that the Cagle fuel pressure regulator will

have no adverse effect on emissions from 1982 model year automobile.

      The staff recommends granting Cagle‘s request to update the exemption.

Evaluation of "Cagle Corporation Mark II Automatic Fuel Control" Device
for Exemption from the Prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 in
égsgrdance with Section 2222, Title 13 of the CalTifornia Administrative


I.    INTRODUCTI ON
      Cagle Corporation of 2667 East 28th Street, Suite 517, Long Beach

California 90806 requested by letter dated August 20, 1982, an update of

the existing Air Resources Board‘s Executive Order No. D—75—4.   The

applicant requested that the exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle

Code Section 27156 for their "Cagle Mark II Automatic Fuel Control"

device be updated to include all 1982 and older model—year motor vehicles

that are powered by gasoline engines with conventional carburetors and

mechanical or electrical fuel pumps with and without fuel recirculation
systems.

II.    CONCLUSION

      Previous Air Resources Board (ARB) confirmatory emissions tests

showed that the use of the "Cagle Mark II Automatic Fuel Control" device

did not have an adverse effect on the exhaust emission control system of

1979 model—year vehicles.   The staff then granted an exemption from the
Vehicle Code for 1979 and older model—year vehicles.

      Updates to include 1980 and 1981 model—year vehicles were granted

on the basis that the vehicles fuel system on 1979, 1980 and 1981 were

similar in design.

      An engineering evaluation of the vehicle‘s fuel system design on

1982, 1981, 1980, and 1979 model—year vehicles indicate that the use of

the Cagle device should not have an adverse effect on 1982 model—year

vehicles.


III.   RECOMMENDATION
       Based on the above, the staff concluded that granting the Cagle

Corporation an exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section

27156 for its "Cagle Mark II Automatic Fuel Control" device for 1982 and

older model vehicles that are pbwered by gasoline engines with

conventional carburetors and mechanical or electrical fuel pumps with or

without fuel recirculation system is justified.     The staff, therefore,

recommends that Executive Order No. D—75—5 be adopted.

IV.    DEVICE DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

       The "Cagle Mark II Automatic Fuel Control" is a fuel pressure

regulator installed between the fuel pump and the carburetor.     It has

three external fittings: (1) a fitting at the top for measuring intake

manifold vacuum; (2) an inlet fitting marked "PUMP" for connection to the

fuel pump; and (3) an outlet fitting market "CARB" for connection to the

carburetor.   It is designed to reduce the fuel supply pressure under low

fuel demand conditions but sti]]lmaintain the required fuel flow to the

carburetor under all operating modes.     The device is controlled by intake

manifold vacuum operating on a spring balanced Buna—N diaphragm.

       A cross sectional view of the device is shown in the Appendix.

       For a more detailed description of the device and its operation,

the reader is referred to ARB Staff Report dated December 17, 1980,

entitled "Cagle Corporation Mark II Automatic Fuel Control Device for

Compliance with the Requirements of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code".

v.     DISCUSSION

       Prior to issuing Executive Order No. D—75—2 (which exempted 1979

and older model—year vehicles) the staff performed comparative exhaust

                                          2.


emissions tests on a 1979 Ford Fairmont with a 302 CID engine and on a

1979 Chevrolet with a 231 CID engine.         The results of these tests were as

follows:

      In addition, fuel pressure measurements were taken before and after

the regulator for various manifold vacuums.            The results were as follows:

Manifold Vacuum                Fuel Pressure (#/in?)                    Change

      11                     4.2                       2.50               1.70

      Then on September 9, 1980, and on June 15, 1981, the applicant

requested, via letters, that the exemption be updated to include 1980 and

1981 model—year vehicles, respectively.     In response to those requests,

the staff compared the vehicle‘s fuel system design on some 1979, 1980

and 1981 model—year vehicles.     Since no significant differences, that

could adversely affect exhaust emissions, were noted, no additional tests

were requested for the updates.

      In response td this request, the staff compared the vehicle‘s fuel

system on some 1982, 1981, 1980 and 1979 model—year vehicles.     No

significant differences were noted between the vehicle‘s fuel system

design even though newer cars tend to operate more fuel efficient.     The

staff, therefore again, did not recommend or perform any additional tests.
