                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—288—17
                             Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                          ofthe Vehicle Code

                                  TRANSFER FLOW, INC.
                           REPLACEMENT FUEL STORAGE SYSTEMS


Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 ofthe Health and
Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Replacement Fuel Storage
Systems, manufactured by Transfer Flow, Inc. of 1444 Fortress Street, Chico, California 95973, has
been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system, and
therefore, the following Replacement Fuel Storage Systems are exempt from the prohibitions of
Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the corresponding 1999 model—year vehicles:




        21—gailon steel            20—gallon plastic      2.4/3.3/3.8 liter Chrysler mainivans

        20— or 22—gallon steel     20—gallon plastic      3.0/3.8 liter Ford Windstar minivans

        26— or 27—gallon steel     34—gallon steel        4.2/4.6/5.4 liter Ford Econoline vans



This exemption is based on fuel tank temperature profile and on—board diagnostic system (OBD II)
testing conducted by Transfer Flow, Inc. on three vehicles: 1) a 1996 model—year 3.3 liter Chrysler
Dodge Caravan (fuel tank temperature profile); 2) a 1997 model—year 3.3 liter Plymouth Voyager
(OBD II); and 3) a 1997 model—year 5.4 liter Ford E—250 van (OBD II).

Through engineering evaluation ofthe fuel tank temperature data, it was concluded that Transfer
Flow, Inc.‘s steel replacement fuel systems will not have an adverse effect on the evaporative
emissions of the Dodge Caravan. In addition, Transfer Flow, Inc. showed that their replacement fuel
systems do not affect the operation of the OBD II systems of the Plymouth Voyager or the E—250
van. The same emissions and OBD II system impact is expected when the replacement fuel systems
are installed on the 1999 model—year vehicles for which the exemption is requested.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for these Replacement Fuel
Storage Systems not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part continues to
meet the standards and procedures ofTitle 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222 et seq.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of these Replacement
Fuel Storage Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR
RESOURCES BOARD OF CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION
BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF TRANSFER FLOW, INC.‘S REPLACEMENT
FUEL STORAGE SYSTEMS.
