155689534323085.pngRVIA says the California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved proposed amendments on fuel fill pipe requirements that will directly impact motorhome and chassis manufacturers.

These amendments introduce a new performance leak standard and additional dimensional specifications for new fill pipe designs. CARB is currently attempting to determine if the additional conforming modifications to the regulation are appropriate.

After holding a 15-day comment period last month, CARB issued a second 15-day notice, which requests comments on proposed modifications to the fill pipe specification amendments that were considered by the board last fall. In the second 15-day notice, modifications are proposed to limited portions of the original proposal.

Comments on the latest 15-day notice are due May 9.
