Assist System” means a system that creates a vacuum to assist the movement of vapors back into the storage tank.

Balance System” means a system where pressure develops in the vehicle tank during fueling operations, and vacuum in the storage tank created when the fuel is removed, forces displaced vapors out the vehicle tank and back into the storage tank.

Modified Facility” means a facility that: (1) excavates below a shear valve or tank pad in order to repair or replace its Stage II system or an underground storage tank; or (2) undergoes a major system modification consisting of the replacement, repair or upgrade of at least 50% of a facility’s Stage II vapor recovery system which includes dispensers, vapor return piping, and product piping.

New Facility” means a facility that begins dispensing fuel for the first time.

Pressure/Vacuum Valve” or “P/V Valve” means a relief valve installed on the vent stack of a tank system that is designed to open at specific pressure and vacuum settings to protect the system from excessive pressure or vacuum.

Tank System” means a storage tank or a set of manifolded storage tanks containing gasoline.

Ullage” means the empty volume of a gasoline storage tank system that contains liquid gasoline. Ullage is expressed as accumulated gallons of empty volume for all of the gasoline storage tanks in a manifolded system.
