A sealed plastic enclosure was proposed in February 1967 by HEW as a technique for measurement of fuel system evaporative emissions from an automobile. Early work with this technique uncovered problems such as car background emissions. Subsequent experimental work, however, has solved these problems and has shown the sealed enclosure capable of correctly measuring total vehicle evaporative emissions. Fuel vapors that actually reach the atmosphere can be measured in a simple, direct way without the necessity for vehicle modification. A complete description of the enclosure is given and its use by GM is described.
