This document announces the conclusions of the EPA evaluation of the P.A.S.S. Kit device under the provisions of Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. The evaluation of the P.A.S.S. Kit device was conducted upon receiving an application for evaluation by the marketer. The P.A.S.S. Kit device is an intake manifold vacuum switch that is designed to disengage the air conditioning compressor during periods of high power demand. The device is claimed to eliminate the load of air conditioning compressor when accelerating and thereby improve fuel economy and performance. EPA fully considered all of the information submitted by the applicant. The evaluation of the P.A.S.S. Kit device was based on that information and the results of the EPA confirmatory testing of a similar device. The overall conclusion is that P.A.S.S. Kit should recover part of the emissions and fuel economy penalty incurred by using the air conditioner of some vehicles.
