(1) connects the Stage I vapor recovery hose before connecting the gasoline delivery hose prior to tank loading;
(2) ensures that all tank truck vapor return equipment is compatible in size and forms a vapor-tight connection with the vapor balance equipment on the gasoline storage tank;
(3) ensures that all hoses in the vapor balance system are properly connected;
(4) ensures that the adapters or couplers that attach the vapor line to the vapor port on the gasoline storage tank have closures that seal upon disconnect;
(5) ensures that all vapor return hoses, couplers, and adapters used to transfer the gasoline vapor are vapor-tight;

(c) Vapor leaks from the gasoline transport vehicle or vapor recovery system may not equal or exceed the lower explosive limit (LEL measured as propane) when measured at a distance of 1 inch from the source with a combustible gas detector. The combustible gas detector used for determining compliance with this standard must be properly calibrated and have a minimum range of 0-100 percent of the LEL as propane, have a probe with an external diameter of one quarter inch (0.635 cm), and a response time less than 30 seconds with sampling line and probe attached.
