Sniffer data

Description

When gasoline is pumped into a tank, hydrocarbon vapors are forced out and into the atmosphere. To reduce this significant source of air pollution, devices are installed to capture the vapor. In testing these vapor recovery systems, a "sniffer" measures the amount recovered. John Rice provided the data for the file sniffer.txt.
