Gas gets explosive react Ion editor s note this is the first in a two part series in which the Herald lakes a look at Federal regulations requiring cer Tain Gas stations to offer non leaded Gaso line beginning july 1. And the effect this will Hay on Consumers gasoline whole salers Lalion owners and the Public Herald Stalf writer get Jim Daric to Inlo a discussion on government control and the Oil business Ihen just sit Back and watch for hours. Slip in a mention of non leaded gasoline and hell be talking for Days his intense Green eyes flashing like so Many Oil Der Ricks going up in flames. The same goes for Phil Sprague. Bring lip the Federal Energy office or the economic stabilization Board or the environmental Protection Agency when he s been silting at his desk All Day taking care of piles of government paper work and you d be just As Safe pouring gasoline leaded or non leaded Over yourself and then lighting a cigarette. Such is the mood among gasoline whole salers these Days. For them the latest government regulation that says All gasoline stations Selling Over 200.000 Gallons yearly Musl Start Selling non leaded Gas after july 1 is another Straw on the Camel s Back. A heavy Straw. It All began with attempts by the environmental Protection Agency Ikea to clean up the air by cutting Down on Llic pollutants coming out of automobile exhausts in order to in this somebody in vented what s called a catalytic converter. A s100 to s150 contraption which lakes the bad air coming into the Muffler and turns it into Good air going Oul the exhaust pipe. An excellent idea. Only Here is a catch. The catalytic converter Only works with r for use As a motor fuel Only contains Lead i a fading Era gasoline containing no Lead whatsoever. If you use leaded gasoline your converter will Slop functioning and the bad air will stay bad. So the heavy wheels of government be Gan turning to devise a scheme which would both make non leaded gasoline widely Avail Able and also keep people from using any thing else in cars with catalytic emission control systems. First of . Legislation was passed making catalytic converters mandatory on All cars beginning with the 1976 Model year. The 1975 models Are expected to be 60 to 80 per cent equipped with the system the second phase of the government plan was to make sure the non leaded gasoline was there for Drivers of the newer Model cars to use. This is the part that drives people like Jim Garret and Phil Sprague up the Wall so the Epa required All stations Selling More than 200.000 Gallons a year to have Al least one pump of unleaded Gas by july 1. Before the 1975models hit the mad. , other stations must convert by july 1. 1975 unless they can prove int they will be out of business by Jan 1. The third and final step in the plan is designed to keep people from getting any thing but non leaded Gas into their new cars to do this the Gas orifice is being reduced in size to keep out the nine Lional Sittl Gas nozzle and non leaded pumps Are being provided with smaller puzzles which can fit into the smaller fuel Inlet.
