                         be taken to ensure complete drainage before the
                         loading device is disconnected and the loading
                         device shall be maintained in a vapor tight and
                         leak free condition when not in use.
                    
                    301.3 Vapor recovery requirements; bulk terminals:  A

                         operated so that it does not cause the pressure in
                         a gasoline delivery vessel to exceed 18 inches
                         water gauge or the vacuum to exceed 6 inches water
                         gauge.

                         that the gasoline delivery vessel be bottom
                         loaded.

                    301.9 In no instance shall the gasoline loading
                         operations exceed the capacity of the vapor
                         processing unit.
