                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—288—41

                                Relating to Exemptions under
                             Section 27156 of the 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 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Replacement Fuel Storage
Systems, manufactured by Transfer Flow, Inc. (TFI) 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 Systems are 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                        Stock Tank        TFI Tank

   1999—2004        F250 & F350 short box trucks        29 gallons        46—48 galions
   1999—2004        F250 & F350 long box trucks         38 gallons        57—59 gallons
   1999—2003        F350 & F450 chassis cabs            19 gallons        30—32 gallons
   2004             F350 chassis cabs                   40 gallons        30—34 gallons
   1997—2003        E150, E250 & E350 vans              35 gallons        46 gallons
   2004             E150, E250 & E350 vans              35—37 gallons     35—37 gallons

The Replacement Fuel Storage Systems include a higher capacity fuel tank, an add—on
emission canister, and low permeation fuel and vapor hoses. The 2004 F350 chassis cab
and 2004 E150, E250, and E350 van systems use OEM—equivalent or smaller capacity fuel
tanks and do not include an add—on emission canister.

The 2004 E150, E250, and E350 van systems require use of fuel and vapor hoses with
permeation less than 5 grams/m*/24 hours.

This Executive Order is based on an evaluation of the Replacement Fuel Storage Systems
for impact on the vehicles‘ evaporative emissions, refueling emissions, and their On—Board
Diagnostic !I (OBD II) Systems. It was concluded that TFl‘s Replacement Fuel Storage
Systems would not adversely affect the vehicles‘ evaporative or refueling emissions or
reduce the effectiveness of their OBD II Systems.

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


                                                9.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Replacehent Fuel Storage
Systems, 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 Systems using identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive
Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Replacement Fuel Storage Systems 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 does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Replacement Fuel Storage Systems 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.

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 California Code of
Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.                                   '

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

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 is made after a hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     f lad     day of March 2004.
