The internal combustion engine was one of major breakthrough by Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir around 1960. Since than its modification has been under progress and now every thing now days runs on internal combustion engine, from industry, marine to a small nano car. The diesel engine has provided the power units for cheap transportation system, i.e. buses, and goods transportation system, i.e. trucks, Indeed the petrol engine powered automobile and diesel engine powered buses and trucks are the symbols of modern technological society. However, in recent time the internal combustion engine powered vehicles have come under heavy attack due to most serious problem of air pollution. From these powered vehicles different pollutants like carbon monoxide, unburned hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen and other particular emissions causes air pollution. The evaporate loss both tank and carburetor are possible sources of atmospheric pollution from a petrol engine powered vehicle. The evaporative emission from fuel tank causes fuel tank losses. These losses are due to due to temperature increases etc. similarly the carburetor losses are due to evaporative emission from carburetor. All above explain different types of losses causes the air pollution. The air pollutants by automobile are 50% of total air pollutants which has rang the alarms for the pollution board. In recent years the pollution has caused many bigger problems. So this technical paper deals with a case study of method which is not prominent in India i. e. evaporation loss control device (ELCD). It is a step for controlling of the evaporative losses.
