                                     SUMMARY



      Cagle Corporation requested an update of their existing exemption,

Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—75—8, 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 1985 and

older model—year carbureted vehicle exemptions be updated to include all 1986

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 1986 model—year vehicle‘s fuel

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

have no adverse effect on emissions from applicable 1986 model—year automobile.

      The staff recommends granting Cagle‘s request to update the Section

27156 exemption to include 1986 model—year vehicles equipped with conventional

carburetors.

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



I.    INTRODUCTION

      Cagle Corporation of 2667 East 28th Street, Suite 517, Long Beach

California 90806 requested an update of the existing Air Resources Board‘s

Executive Order No. D—75—8.   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 1986 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.   E.0. No. D—75—8 exempts 1985 and older

model—year vehicles of this type.

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 specified 1979

model—year vehicles.   An exemption from the Vehicle Code for 1979 and older

model—year vehicles was granted.

      The manufacturer was granted updates of the E.0. to include applicable

1980 through 1985 model—year vehicles on the basis that the vehicles‘ fuel

systems on 1979 through 1985 were similar in design,.

      An engineering evaluation of the vehicles‘ fuel system on 1986

model—year vehicles indicates that it is similar in design to that of 1985

vehicles; the use of the Cagle device,therefore, should not have an adverse

effect on applicable 1986 model—year vehicles either.


III.   RECOMMENDATIONS
       Based on the above, the staff concludes that the "Cagle Mark II

Automatic Fuel Control" device meets the criteria for an exemption from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for 1986.and older model vehicles

that are powered by gasoline engines with conventional carburetors and

mechanical or electrical fuel pumps with or without fuel recirculation

system.   The staff, therefore, recommends that Executive Order No. D—75—9 be

issued to Cagle Corporation.

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.     The device 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 still maintain the required fuel flow to the carburetor under

all operating modes.     The device is controlled by intake manifold vacuum

cperating on a spring balanced Buna—N diaphragm (see the Appendix for a cross

sectional view of the device).

       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

      The staff previously performed comparative exhaust emissions tests on a

1979 Ford Fairmont with a 302 CID engine and on a 1979 Chevrolet with a 231

CID engine.    Based on the test results the staff concluded that the Cagle

device would not have an adverse effect on 1979 and older model—year vehicles

with conventional carburetors and mechanical fuel pumps with and without fuel

recirculation system.    The manufacturer was granted updates of the E.0. to

include applicable 1980 through 1985 model—year vehicles on the basis that the

vehicles‘ fuel systems on 1979 through 1985 were similar in design.

      The staff compared the vehicle‘s fuel system on 1985 through 1986

model—year vehicles.    No significant differences were noted between the

vehicles‘ fuel system design even though newer cars tend to operate»mbre fuel

efficient.    The staff concluded that the Cagle device would not have an

adverse effect on applicable 1986 model—year vehicles and, therefore, did not

recommend any additional tests.
