Burger Motorsports, LLC Settlement
Burger Motorsports, LLC Case Settles for $91,600
In May 2015, Burger Motorsports, LLC (Burger) settled its case with the Air Resources Board (ARB). A routine investigation by ARB revealed that Burger sold, offered for sale, and/or advertised, aftermarket performance parts that were not exempted from California’s anti-tampering laws. Such performance parts replace vital original emission components such as air intake systems, oil catch cans remove oil that would normally be routed through the positive crankcase ventilation system, and tuners allow the user to modify the manufacturer specified engine operating conditions, and thus must be evaluated by ARB to demonstrate continued emissions compliance. Burger has agreed to pay a penalty of $91,600 to the Air Pollution Control Fund. Burger has taken steps toward future compliance by applying to ARB for several of its aftermarket performance parts. They will also implement a compliance plan which includes a buyback program. Burger has agreed not to install, sell, offer for sale, or advertise in California any aftermarket part in violation of the California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2220 et seq. or Vehicle Code section 27156.
