Vapor Recovery Program

This page last reviewed December 11, 2017


The California Air Resources Board (CARB) evaluates and tests new or modified vapor recovery systems. These systems recover the gasoline vapors generated while fueling vehicles in a service station. The goal of the program is to assure that the vapor recovery systems which meet the stringent certification requirements are certified expeditiously.
