Scope
Content
This SAE Recommended Practice was developed primarily for gasoline-powered passenger car and truck applications to interface vapor recovery systems, but may be used in diesel applications, marine, industrial, and similar applications where a nozzle is required for filling. The zones cover nozzle spout access and handle clearance to a refilling port. In addition, this practice includes a design window for nozzle manufacturers to develop with.
Rationale
Content
The following update covers improvements to the existing zone (Method 1) through updated dimensioning and spelled out clearances. In addition, Method 2, with increased clearance, and Method 3, a fully static version used for both automotive and nozzle manufacturers, have been added. The changes were developed with CARB, automotive, and nozzle industries, all working to improve the interface.
