                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—288—21
                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code

                             TRANSFER FLOW, INC.
                       REPLACEMENT FUEL STORAGE SYSTEM


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 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Replacement Fuel Storage
System, manufactured by Transfer Flow, Inc. (TFl) 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 Replacement Fuel Storage System is exempt
from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on 2001 model—
year General Motors Corporation 3.4 liter Venture minivans, originally equipped with a
25—gallon plastic fuel tank.

This exemption is based on On—Board Refueling Vapor Recovery (ORVR) and On—Board
Diagnostic II (ODB II) system testing conducted by TFIl. Based on evaluation of ORVR
emission data and OBD II system test results, it was concluded that TFI‘s Replacement
Fuel Storage System does not adversely affect the vehicle‘s refueling emissions or reduce
the effectiveness of its OBD II system. Based on engineering evaluation of previous fuel
tank temperature data, it was also concluded that the Replacement Fuel Storage System
would not adversely affect the vehicle‘s evaporative emissions.

Exemption of the Replacement Fuel Storage System shall not be construed as an
exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the Replacement Fuel
Storage System as individual devices.

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

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Replacement Fuel Storage
System, as exempt by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Replacement Fuel Storage System using an identification other than
that shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than those listed in this
Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

REPLACEMENT FUEL STORAGE SYSTEM                           (Page 2 of 2)


In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this
Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on
or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California
Code of Regulations, Section 2222 et seq.

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

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication. °

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 SYSTEM.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing
is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request and the Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination after the hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this Z*~*       day of May 2001.
