CRC Vapor Lock Technique Its Development and Application (Report of Volatility Group, Motor Vehicle Fuel, Lubricant, and Equipment Research Committee of the Coordinating Research Council, Inc.) 630453

In 1958 the Coordinating Research Council conducted an extensive series of vapor lock road tests at a centralized location to study the effect of test variables on the hot fuel handling characteristics of passenger cars. Two years later, another test program was carried out at a common location to determine the hot fuel handling characteristics of a selected group of 1960 cars, employing the vapor lock survey technique developed in the 1958 program. The results obtained from the two programs indicate that this technique provides a satisfactory basis for defining the more severe vapor handling characteristics of automobiles in a relatively short time.
