§ 80.22 Controls and prohibitions.
(a) After December 31, 1995, no person shall sell, offer for sale, supply, offer for supply, dispense, transport, or introduce into commerce gasoline represented to be unleaded gasoline unless such gasoline meets the defined requirements for unleaded gasoline in § 80.2(g); nor shall he dispense, or cause or allow the gasoline other than unleaded gasoline to be dispensed into any motor vehicle which is equipped with a gasoline tank filler inlet which is designed for the introduction of unleaded gasoline.
(b) After December 31, 1995, no person shall sell, offer for sale, supply, offer for supply, dispense, transport, or introduce into commerce for use as fuel in any motor vehicle (as defined in Section 216(2) of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7550(2)), any gasoline which is produced with the use of lead additives or which contains more than 0.05 gram of lead per gallon.
(c) -(e) [Reserved]
(f) Every retailer and wholesale purchaser-consumer shall equip all gasoline pumps from which gasoline is dispensed into motor vehicles with a nozzle spout that meets all the following specifications:
(1) The outside diameter of the terminal end shall not be greater than 0.840 inches (2.134 centimeters).
(2) The terminal end shall have a straight section of at least 2.5 inches (6.34 centimeters).
(3) The retaining spring shall terminate at least 3.0 inches (7.6 centimeters) from the terminal end.
(g) The specifications in this paragraph (g) apply for any new nozzle installations used primarily for dispensing gasoline into marine vessels beginning January 1, 2009. (Note that nozzles meeting the specifications of this paragraph (g) also meet the specifications of paragraph (f) of this section. Note also that the additional specifications in this paragraph (g) do not apply for nozzles used primarily for dispensing gasoline into motor vehicles rather than marine vessels.) Every retailer and wholesale purchaser-consumer shall use nozzles meeting these specifications for any new construction or for nozzle replacements. This does not require replacement of existing nozzles for refueling marine vessels before they would be replaced for other reasons. The following specifications apply to spouts on new or replacement nozzles intended for dispensing gasoline into marine vessels:
(1) The outside diameter of the terminal end shall have a diameter of 0.824 ±0.017 inches (2.093 ±0.043 centimeters).
(2) The spout shall include an aspirator hole for automatic shutoff positioned with a center that is 0.67 ±0.05 inches (1.70 ±0.13 centimeters) from the terminal end of the spout.
(3) The terminal end shall have a straight section of at least 2.5 inches (6.34 centimeters) with no holes or grooves other than the aspirator hole.
(4) The retaining spring (if applicable) shall terminate at least 3.0 inches (7.6 centimeters) from the terminal end.
(h) -(i) [Reserved]
(j) After July 1, 1996 every retailer and wholesale purchaser-consumer handling over 10,000 gallons (37,854 liters) of fuel per month shall limit each nozzle from which gasoline or methanol is introduced into motor vehicles to a maximum fuel flow rate not to exceed 10 gallons per minute (37.9 liters per minute). The flow rate may be controlled through any means in the pump/dispenser system, provided the nozzle flow rate does not exceed 10 gallons per minute (37.9 liters per minute). After January 1, 1998 this requirement applies to every retailer and wholesale purchaser-consumer. Any dispensing pump that is dedicated exclusively to heavy-duty vehicles, boats, or airplanes is exempt from this requirement.
