                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

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 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 in section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code for installation on the
following Ford Motor Company vehicles:

Model—Year      Vehicle Model             Engine Size      Stock Tank      TFI Tank

2002            Ford Econoline vans       4.2/5.4/6.8      35 gallons      30 gallons

This exemption is based on fuel tank temperature profile and On—Board Diagnostic II
(OBD II) System testing conducted by TFI. Based on test results, it was concluded that the
Replacement Fuel Storage System would not adversely affect the vehicles‘ evaporative
emissions or reduce the effectiveness of their OBD II Systems.

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 shall not apply to any device advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or
installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Replacement
Fuel Storage System do not recommend tuning the vehicles 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.

 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.

Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing
