Procedures for Gasoline Vapor Recovery systems at Service
Stations", dated March 30, 1976, as shown in Exhibit I.
The staff, as directed by the Board, has evaluated the comments
received at the February 19, 1976 hearing concerning the proposed
certification and test procedures. As a result of the requested

warning device requirement; 2) changing the five year warranty to
a three year warranty requirement; 3) clarifying the Executive
Officer's responsibility in determining the financial
responsibility of the applicant; and 4) adding a requirement that
a system must be able to fuel all vehicles which can be fueled by
a service station not equipped with a vapor recovery system.
Test procedures were changed by: 1) clarifying the time of
installation of the modified nozzle and 2) allowing the use of
hydrocarbon analyzers other than an FID if approved by the ARB.
