 equipped with an aftertreatment emission control system such as a catalytic converter. This
Executive Order is only valid provided the engines meet the following operating condition:
the engine exhaust temperature is between 280 and 325 degrees Celsius for at least 25
percent of the typical duty cycle.

 The Purifilters exempted under this Executive Order can be installed on engines operated
 using standard California diesel with a maximum sulfur content of 500 parts per million by
 weight (ppmw), ultra—low sulfur diesel (ULSD) with a maximum sulfur content of 50 ppmw,
 or PuriNOx water emulsion fuel based on standard California diesel or ULSD. The
 Purifilters exempted under this Executive Order are identified in Attachment A.

This Executive Orderis valid provided that installation instructions for the Purifilters do not
recommend tuning the engines to specifications different from those of the engine
manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Purifilters, as exempted by the
Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the engine‘s pollution
control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

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.
