New Fuel Primer Bulb From Larand Products Beats Tighter EPA/CARB Emission Standard, Offers Superior Performance

As of January 1, 2011, fuel primer bulbs for outboards must comply with US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations limiting carbon emissions to 15 grams per square meter, per day. A new primer bulb from Larand Products exceeds the EPA/CARB standard and also offers performance and reliability superior to other OEM and aftermarket bulbs.

The new primer bulb allows emissions of less than 6 grams per square meter, per day, beating the standard by almost 70 percent. Made from a durable compound that stands up to harsh weather conditions and maintains excellent flexibility in low temperatures (in lab tests, the new bulb pumped 20 percent more fuel than the leading OEM bulb). Unlike products that rely on mechanical pumps, this primer bulb has no seals that can leak fuel.

• Familiar look and feel
• 70% less fuel permeation than new standard allows
• Durable and weather resistant
• Leak-proof design
• Excellent low-temperature flexibility
• Superior pumping efficiency
