The Air Index level defines how clean an engine's exhaust is over a period of
time. A bar graph scaled from "0" (most clean) to "10" (least clean) is used to
show an engine's Air Index level. A lower Air Index level represents cleaner
exhaust from an engine.
The period of time (in hours) that the Air Index level is measured is known as
the durability period. Depending on the size of the engine, a selection of time
periods can be used to measure the Air Index level (see below).
Descriptive Term
Moderate
Intermediate

Notice : This hangtag must remain on this engine or piece of equipment, and
only be removed by the ultimate purchaser before operation.
WARNING :
The engine exhaust from this product contains
