Abstract
A study was conducted of the operational reliability of vapor recovery systems at gasoline service stations in San Diego County, California. Periodic inspections at 24 stations were conducted to examine the condition of these systems, to determine their operational status, and to check for detectable gasoline vapor losses from control equipment. The study demonstrated that capture of vapors at the vehicle was more effective with vacuum-assisted systems than with vapor balance systems. However, the reliability of the vacuum-assisted systems was not good in general although there was substantial variation depending upon the type of unit.

A study was conducted of the operational reliability of vapor recovery systems at gasoline service stations in San DIego County, California. Periodic inspections at 24 stations were conducted to examine the condition of these systems, to determine their operational status, and to check for detectable gasoline vapor losses from control equipment. The study demonstrated that capture of vapors at the vehicle was more effective with vacuum-assisted systems than with vapor balance systems. However, the reliability of the vaccum-assisted systems was not good in general although there was substantial variation depending upon the type of unit.
