Abstract:

This Test Operations Procedure provides an overview of desert environmental testing required for evaluation of the fuel vapor handling capability of wheeled and tracked vehicles having gasoline powered internal combustion engines. This test operation Procedure covers a field performance test the fuel vapor handling capability of wheeled and tracked vehicles. This test is particularly appropriate for desert environmental testing of vehicles having gasoline powered internal combustion engines which have low or non-pressurized fuel systems. At low pressures and high temperature, fuel can vaporize in the fuel system and potentially immobilize the vehicle.
