A process for reclaiming and recycling gasoline vapor that collects in the headspace of gasoline storage tanks at retail service stations comprises sealing the tank against ingress of atmospheric gases, introducing a selected inert gas into the storage tank as the liquid gasoline is extracted therefrom to establish an inert gas/gasoline vapor mixture in the headspace of the storage tank, periodically recovering the inert gas/gasoline vapor mixture from the storage tank, and processing the recovered mixture to condense the gasoline vapor to liquid gasolin...
In a gasoline distribution network wherein gasoline is drawn from a gasoline storage tank and pumped into individual vehicles and wherein the gasoline storage tank is refilled periodically from a gasoline tanker truck, a method of recovering liquid gasoline from gasoline vapor that collects in the headspace of the gasoline storage tank as the liquid gasoline is drawn therefrom, said method comprising the steps of: (a) providing a source of inert gas; (b) introducing inert gas into the gasoline storage tank as liquid gasoline is drawn therefrom so that li...
