    Between 1998-2006 car makers began equipping new vehicles with on-board vapor recovery systems (carbon canisters). The EPA has proposed that vapor recovery at the stations be phased-out beginning in June 2013 because there are enough new cars on the road. This will save station owners and fuel depot operators millions of dollars because they can remove the equipment.
    (http://www.epa.gov/glo/pdfs/20110711factsheet.pdf)

    Fuel trucks will still have to capture the storage tank vapors while unloading, but I think it will be less concentrated without the recovery from cars.

    This proposed rule has nothing to do with our vapor recovery when we drop at a station. That would be stage 1.

    We have some stations around here with no vapor recovery. We discovered that using a coax setup even with out a coax pipe in the ground still recovered the vapors. Since the fuel flowing in didn't fill the whole pipe because of the size reduction in the fitting, vapors still escaped up the pipe and into the recovery hose.

    They could be looking at the old coaxle drop that Emco Wheaton came out with for a quick fix. There's only one fitting there.

    Years old when I was in school for environmental junk we did go over the Clean Air Act and places that do not have a problem nor will there ever be just might be allowed to not have vapor recovery. If you ask me it's stupid to blow vapors out the top and have people anywhere around it.

    Why wouldn't they repair the pipe. I'm sure if it was required once it's still required.

    Huh? It's not broken, it just doesn't have a vapor recovery.
