VAPOR RECOVERY NOZZLE DEVELOPMENT AND FIELD TESTING

This paper outlines design considerations and criteria used to construct a prototype vapor balance gasoline nozzle. The nozzle incorporates a particular magnetic material on the face of the vapor recovery boot with a synthetic polymeric material on the sealing surface. A specific vapor recovery boot design is revealed which assists mating to the surface of the fill pipe. This nozzle was evaluated on 47 in-service vehicles at a specially equipped, commercial station in Chino, California. Percent vapor control was 88.9%. /GMRL/
