                              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 vestedin 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 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               TE Tank

1997—2003      Econoline vans    4.2/4.6/5.4/6.8   34—35 gallon mid—ship _ 26—30 gallon aft—axle
2004—2005      Econoline vans    4.6/5.4/6.8       35 gallon mid—ship      30 gallon aft—axle

The 2004 and 2005 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 System
for impact on the vehicles‘ evaporative emissions, refueling emissions, and their On—Board
Diagnostic II (OBD I!) Systems. Based on engineering evaluation and previous test results,
it is concluded that TFI‘s Replacement Fuel Storage System would not adversely affect the
vehicles‘ evaporative emissions or reduce the effectiveness of their OBD II Systems.

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.

shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive
